FAIRVIEW HIEGHTS, Ill. (KMOV.com) – Authorities say two individuals were charged on March 2 in relation to a possible domestic dispute.

The incident began in East St. Louis and ended at the Fairview Heights MetroLink station on February 29.

Just before 10 a.m. on February 29, authorities say the Fairview Heights Police Department received a 911 call from a man who was in the MetroLink parking lot in Fairview Heights.

Police say the caller was watching another man in a white Chrysler 300 breaking out all of the windows with a hammer of a white Chevrolet Malibu while a woman was in the car.

The caller said after the suspect broke all of the windows, the Chrysler left the parking lot with the white Malibu headed southbound on Route 161 toward Belleville.

A short time later, both cars were spotted coming back into Fairview Heights by officers. Authorities then attempted to stop the while Chrysler on St. Clair Avenue, west of Route 16 in Fairview Heights. The Chrysler pulled over immediately with the victim in the Malibu still following and stopping along with the officers.

The victim told the officers the man driving the Chrysler was her ex-boyfriend, Norlando T. Jackson, 18, and he was known to carry, or was carrying a gun.

Once the suspect was pulled over, police say Jackson and his female occupant, Tori D. Tigue, 18, refused to get out of the vehicle, after being asked by police.

After 40 minutes, officers say both occupants exited the vehicle and were secured in custody by police. Officers say after taking an inventory of Jackson’s car, a gun was not located.

No injuries were reported during the incident. The MetroLink was halted in the area for about 30 minutes during the investigation.

According to the St. Clair Count State Attorney’s Office, Jackson of East St. Louis was charged with felony property damage and obstructing a police officer. Jackson’s bond was set at $30,000. Tigue of Belleville was charged with obstructing an officer after she refused to get out of her car. Tigue’s bond was set at $5,000.
