A city alderwoman from Crane has been charged with misdemeanor assault of a law enforcement officer following an incident last weekend.

According to Sheriff Richard Hill, an deputy pulled over a vehicle about 11:00 p.m. Saturday (05-05-12) at 607 Hemphill that "was being operated in a suspicious manner."  When the deputy approached the vehicle he "could smell a strong odor of intoxicants coming from inside the vehicle."

One of the occupants of the vehicle, Thomas Barnett, 27, of  Brookline, was wanted on a municipal traffic warrant out of Crane.  When officer Richard Morrison attempted to arrest Barnett he was allegedly assaulted by Brittany Barnett.  Hill says Brittany Nichole Barnett, 23, also of Brookline, kicked an officer in the groin and she has been charged with misdemeanor assault of a law enforcement officer.

Stone County deputies had been called to back-up Morrison and Hill says several people attempted to interfere with the arrest of Thomas Barnett. 


Jordan White (mug shot SCSO)


Court records say that Jordan Ray White, 26, of Crane, attempted to intimidate officers at the scene by ordering them off of his property.  "I informed White to sit down and remain quiet"  White then screamed "this is my f*****g property."  As Deputy Taylor Jenkins attempted to arrest Jordan White he allegedly drew back his fist in an attempt to strike the deputy.  Jenkins used his forearm and bicep to block the punch and struck White in the face.  He has been charged with resisting or interfering with an arrest.

Donald White (mug shot SCSO)


According to the probable cause statement filed against Donald R. White, 56, from Aurora, the man attempted to punch deputies Brandon Flack and Jenkins.  When he was ordered to put his hands behind his back he refused to comply and continued to fight with officers, at which point he was tazed.  He has been charged with resisting or interfering with an arrest.

Jessica Beth White, 31, who is Ward 1 Alderwoman, was allegedly intoxicated when she hit Jenkins in the back of the head, according to court records.   She has been charges with assault of a law enforcement officer.

As a witness to the alleged story of my family attacking police officers I would like to inform you that your information is completely and utterly false and will be proven so in a court of law!

Kathee Baird said...

All I did was report what was in the probable cause statement and my interview's with authorities.

I left a message for Jessica to contact me if she would like to get her side of the story out and it was not returned.

I look forward to hearing the complete story.

This is absolutely not what happened. Jessica is a GREAT woman and mother. I suggest getting facts from people OTHER than the d bag cops that were there.

The FACTS are all there, she DID PUNCH a cop!!!!! Ive seen the video that Levi Cook took with his cell phone and is sharing with about everyone(smart huh). Its clear as day you can see her rare back and punch him in the back of the head after her old man punched a cop just prior. So "Anonymous" you need your FACTS straight before you start talking about what you didn't see. You get what you give.

Of course the law is always going to be the bad no matter how the story gets twisted and told by people that weren't even there. If she is such a GREAT woman and mother than she shouldn't have puched a cop in the back of the head in front of her son. She would have shown some respect for the cop as he was getting struck in the face by her fater inlaw and not get involved.

So for the "bad cops" that were there I comend you for coming out every day and putting your life on the line to deal with ignorant people that have no clue and sit back hating on you untill they need you on their side.

And trust me the information is not utterly false but absolutley 100% true. So unless you were there lets just keep our nonfactual opinons to ourselfs. Unless you know the truth then your just part of the problem.

Wait a minute. I've seen the video and you can see Jessica hit the cop in the back of the head as he is cuffing someone else.

Yup great woman?

For all of the comments, they are appreciated. There are lies on the news, on the web and on all these message boards. There were 3 videos from this event. Not one came from a state trooper, not one from the crane police, and not one from the stone county sheriffs department. All 3 videos came from innocent people that new what was going on was wrong, and levi cook was not one of them. If you wasn't there and you don't know what you're talking about don't put false comments on here about the police, nor the innocent family that this happened to.

This is Levi cook and the comment about seeing a video on my phone is completely false I never recorded anything on my phone but I did witness innocent people get abused by the police

levi cook said...

I still cant get over this completely false comment. Once again this is LEVI COOK. If you have the guts to get on here and post false statements about me or anybody else that was at the residence then surely you have the guts to post YOUR NAME to back up your comments.

What this story fails to convey is Jordan was arrested with unnecessary and unwarranted force on his own property. When Donny stepped in to defend his son from unlawful acts by officers, he was also accosted and beaten with unjust cause. At which point Jessica, a woman of the community, who clearly knows right from wrong, stepped in to try to defend her husband and father in law against armed, yet wreckless "law enforcers" she too was taken down by force that is too often overly aggressive but dismissed as "warranted'. So an arrest for interfering with an arrest that never should have happened-let alone the unnecessary brutality- is an arrest I would proudly take to defend my defenseless family any day, and I commend the whites for standing up to officers who take their role in the law too far... On a citizens private property... For an unrelated traffic violation.

Who cares, stone county imbreads. Got what you deserved. Surprised you weren't shot.

Keep to that story Levi. Or lie whatever you want say to cover yourself. You may not have taken it but your showing it off.

Jessica a woman of the community doesn't know right from wrong obviously lol she hit a deputy in the head. Real great leader if you ask me haha.

These are not stone county inbreds! Stupidity on your part. You are probably an inbred.

No one has any right to form any opinion unless they were there to witness the actions of that night. The White's have gotten a sea of support from the community and everyone who knows them and their outstanding support and involvement in the Crane area!

They have chosen to talk only to her Lawyer which is very smart on her part. The authorities messed up by telling unfactual statements already of the happenings of that night. There are plenty of witnesses to this situation and all are preceeding with caution as they should when it comes to regarding the law. The officers are just mad because they were not given the videos at the scene. Witnesses were smart not to do this!

To all the supporters, stop reading this junk. These are all people who were not even present on that saturday night. Levi, im pretty sure if her "OLD MAN" or even his "OLD MAN" had punched a cop, they would have been charged with assaulting an officer as well. These people know nothing about that night, You guys have video, and plenty of well respected wittnesses that seen what happened that night. Pay no more attention to these clowns!

Gotta love Crane. Its a bunch of people talking about business they have no business to talk about. I've been following this blog from a witness/neighbor stand point and there's only about 10% truth to all of this. I support the deputies decision. All I'm asking is that if you didn't see it first hand .... SHUT UP! You only sound and look like a fool because your "facts" have gotten twisted and turned around. When it does come out and it will, those of you that have slammed the wrong people will then be quite and realize the whites aren't saints. Its easy to sit back and judge when you wasn't there and are only taking sides of your friends even when you don't know the whole story. Its easy to throw blame at the police, its just easier that way instead of admitting wrong. I call it embarrassment and cowardly. So go ahead and knock this and ill read and ill laugh at the false facts you will come back with. Because 99% of you weren't even there and the 1% that was won't admitt you provoked it.

Anonymous said...

The "Whites" never claimed to be "Saints" and im pretty sure you fall in that 99%. So do me a favor and take your own advice!

This isn't the first time law enforcement in Stone County/Crane have been accused of going overboard. All the cops were fired up Saturday night hoping the big bad bikers would do something and when nothing happend they decided to start something with innocent people. Maybe she did hit the cop?! Maybe not! I don't know that I would be able to sit and just watch law enforcement beat on my family members.
Jordan, Jessica and Stick are all good people that I personally know and respect.
People get on here and act like they have never done anything wrong or anything they regret. Get over it and let them deal with their own business!

Your stupid ass police brutality website is the dumbest fuckin thing I have ever seen in my life. You can clearly see her hit the officer. Game fuckin over for her. The drunk dumb shit on the ground is also clearly resisting and deserves all he got. Anyone that fights with cops, deserves what they get when they are there trying to serve an arrest warrant and you guys get involved in something that is none of your damn business. Your stupid as facts aren't even correct. There has never been a recorded death anywhere in the world from the use of a taser on someone who is SOBER and without a medical condition. That is a FACT !!! Those that have died, had high amounts of drugs in their system.

You guys are out to make a quick buck and I hope you all do time for your little rant. Especially your stupid lyin ass "all star" basketball player. Damn you guys are dumb.........

Why dont you state your name if you are going to make those false statements, based on your blog and all of the curse words, I would put money on this being posted by flack or jenkins. Hopefully you both are looking for a job soon!

I guess you morons think the police going onto your property withou probable cause, searching vehicles, then verbally and physically attacking the residents is legal? Once they were acting outside the law they are no longer police but intruders!
In Indiana you could have shot and killed them and it would've been legal! Those jack boot sheriffs would've been dead!
You sheeple just sit back and let them keep violating your rights! Keep your belief that they are never wrong!!

This ain't Indiana. Pull a gun on a cop anywhere else, ur dead and probably deserve it. Promote cop killing.....real smart

Ok there is no fixing STUPID and it is only amplified by alcohol. Kathee, you did a great job reporting the facts. The whole issue is there was a routine traffic stop being made, the car pulled into the Whites driveway. (They were attending the Whites party they were having) The deputy didn’t know this till after the arrests. The Whites showed extreme hostility towards the police. What got them into trouble was they interfered with an investigation; they assaulted a cop and then the resisted arrest. A wonderful tri-fecta. The Whites are out to get rich on a law suit and so is their attorney. I would like to know why they didn’t get charged with a felony for assaulting an officer instead of a misdemeanor. I know if I had that many people around me yelling while I was trying to get the situation under control I would be in fear of my life.

This ain't Indiana. Thank God ! Killing the cops really ? Come on people, there's other ways to hold someone accountable if they are doing something wrong, cop or not. Thanks for trying to promote cop killing in MO though....... Cuz we really need more drama, as if the Meth isn't bad enough.

Some of you are unbelievable. I've watched this video over & over again. The cops did nothing wrong or went outside their training. I'd have reacted much worse-- but that's why I'm not a cop.
All you have are opportunistic alcoholic backwoods hillbillies. The only reason anyone would buy their story is b/c of how dramatic they've made it. I can't believe these hillbillies took a cheap shot to get attention & money for their drug & alcohol habits.

Here's an idea: Don't break the law & you won't have to encounter the police. Idiots.
