What I saw happen yesterday, Sunday, in Dickinson, North Dakota was very upsetting and troubling to me. I hope that people in Dickinson will share this, remember this, and discuss this with Law Enforcement in Dickinson to make them aware.
On Sunday, October 20, at 4:00 p.m, I went to the M&H gas station on Villard Street in Dickinson to buy gasoline and a twelve-pack of Coke. While I was filling my vehicle with gas, I noticed two other male customers who were also putting gasoline in their vehicles. I went inside and I bought a twelve-pack of Coke, then I went back out to my vehicle at the gas pumps.
As I was getting into my vehicle to leave, I saw a very new, white color, four-door, four-wheel-drive Dodge 1500 pickup truck pull into the parking lot at the west side of the M&H gas station building. A skinny woman, about 30 years of age, quickly got out of the passenger side of this Dodge truck, acting angry, slamming the truck door very hard, stomping away, then she began screaming frantically for help.
No one was following after her, and no one was doing anything to her. The driver of the Dodge truck, he just sat in the truck. The woman continued to scream and yell, and yell for someone to call the Police. She then threw her phone down onto the concrete parking lot. At one point, she dropped down onto the sidewalk beside the M&H building, to try to act like she was hurt and injured.
The driver of the Dodge truck then got out of his truck, and he began to try to dial on his phone. I assumed that he was calling the Police himself. The woman then ran over to the male driver of the Dodge truck, who was dialing his phone, and she began trying to hit him. He held onto each of her wrists as she tried to hit him. She quit hitting him, and she then walked about ten feet away. No one was harming her, or preventing her from leaving.
On her own, with no one touching her or doing anything to her, she stomped quickly back over to the Dodge truck, and she got back into the passenger side of the Dodge truck. She was not hurt or injured. She began flailing around on the inside of the truck, like she was trying to cause damage and break things.
The driver of the Dodge truck got back in, and he began backing out of the parking lot. The woman opened the truck door all the way, and she began yelling for someone to call the Police. No one was preventing her from getting out of the Dodge truck.
The male customer closest to me at the gas pumps, he had stopped what he was doing to see if this woman was in trouble, and he appeared to want to help, but he didn’t know what to do. I said to him that no one is doing anything to her, she is acting like she is out of her mind on drugs. The male customer replied, “Obviously”.
I was going to call the Police, because the way that she was acting, someone was going to get hurt or get falsely accused of assaulting this woman. I drove in the same direction as this white Dodge truck, to be able to tell the Police dispatcher where this truck was, and what direction it was heading. The woman got out of this Dodge truck right at the next corner, right at Main Street, and the Dodge truck drove away.
The woman began screaming bloody murder, like she had just been kidnapped and raped, first dropping down onto the sidewalk like she was injured and hurt, but then jumping up and running out into Main Street to try to stop passing cars, yelling for help, like it was a matter of life and death. A man wearing a backpack who happened to be passing by on Main Street on the other side of the street from her, he ran over to help her.
The woman then dropped back down onto the sidewalk like she was injured and hurt. A few times it looked like she was trying to get back up and run out into traffic again, as I came to the stop sign at Main Street and I made a right turn. I had dialed the Police dispatcher, and the dispatcher “Miranda” said that she had just received other calls about this woman, she asked me to please hold. I explained to the Police dispatcher Miranda what I had seen, and I gave her my name and phone number.
Within a few minutes, just as the Police were arriving, the passerby on Main Street who had run across the street to help this woman, he looked like he was trying to get away from her. It appeared that he had had enough of trying to help her, realizing that she was out of her mind, that she was probably on drugs, that she was not injured, and that no one was trying to come after her.
While I was parked on the side of Main Street, waiting on hold, then talking to the Police dispatcher Miranda, looking in my rear-view and side-view mirrors, this woman was continuing to try to get up, and yelling hysterically at passing cars.
This woman was out of her mind. There was nothing physically wrong with her when she got out of the Dodge truck at the M&H gas station, slammed the truck door, and angrily stomped across the parking lot. She dropped down on the sidewalk to pretend like she was hurt, but jumped right back up and quickly stomped back over to the truck, and got in. No one was preventing her from walking away.
I realized that if this woman had even just grabbed hold of my vehicle door handle, or any man’s vehicle door handle, passersby and the Police would have jumped to the conclusion that the vehicle driver must have just assaulted, harmed, raped, or drugged this woman, and were now trying to get away. Or, that they had hit her with their vehicle.
Even worse, if this woman would have run and jumped in the back seat or passenger seat of my vehicle, or any man’s vehicle, like what she appeared to be trying to do with passing vehicles on Main Street, the Police never ever would have believed the vehicle driver saying, “I have never seen this woman before, I don’t know who she is, she just ran and jumped in my vehicle.” The Police would be handcuffing the driver, and taking the driver to jail for assault, kidnapping, sexual assault, and rape.
Because this woman was behaving so hysterically like someone had just kidnapped her, assaulted her, and raped her, yelling for help, yelling for people to call the Police like her life was in immediate danger, upon witnessing this, everyone passing by appeared to believe that something like this must have just happened.
These hysterics were all just an act, dupe, con, and fraud. She could have caused an innocent man to be arrested, charged, and jailed for a serious crime with this act that she was putting on. The Police in Dickinson couldn’t tell and would not have known that she was making the whole thing up.
Women in Dickinson probably think that this is funny, and something that they can try too. The next time that I happen upon a woman screaming for help, I am going to press my vehicle door lock button, and drive away as quickly as possible, because apparently women think that it is a good idea to make false accusations of assault, sexual assault, and rape.
I waited for the Dickinson Press newspaper to publish its most recent “Police Blotter” or “Crime & Courts” article, in order to try to find out who this woman was on Sunday, October 20. On October 23, the Dickinson Press newspaper article “Stark County District Court Oct. 21 & 22” had this record:
“Jessica Michelle Smith, 33, of Dickinson, initial appearance: violation of order prohibiting contact (misdemeanor); bond hearing: contact by bodily fluids or excrement (felony); bond hearing: simple assault domestic violence, preventing arrest, unlawful possession drug paraphernalia (misdemeanors)”
The above record kind of matched the incident and the behavior that I witnessed on Sunday, it involved a 33 year old woman, simple assault domestic violence, preventing arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, and violation of a no contact order. I went to the North Dakota Court Repository website to look at the actual date of arrest for this incident, and the charge of violating a no contact order did occur on Sunday, October 20.
I tried to find a photo of Jessica Michelle Smith on the internet, but I could not, so I can’t say that she is the person that I saw on Sunday. I am still trying to find out if this was her.
