According to the police report, Reynolds "specifically" threatened "to come after the victim" in a Facebook post that was published the same day of the incident. Richardson and Blair were charged with aiding and abetting second-degree assault with a risky weapon and aiding and abetting third-degree assault.

Prosecutors say the officer, Jeronimo Yanez of the St. Anthony Police Department, a Latino, shot Castile seven times after the elementary school cafeteria worker told him he was armed.

Reynolds reportedly hit the woman in the head with a hammer, knocking her to the ground and continued to strike her in the head with the hammer when she was on the ground, the complaint continued.

Diamond Reynolds, the woman who recorded her boyfriend, Philando Castile's, death during a traffic stop past year, was arrested for assault on Friday.

Diamond Laray Reynolds, of West St. Paul, was charged Friday in connection with an assault that happened Tuesday morning on St. Paul's east side. The complaint says Reynolds continued hitting the woman in the head with the hammer, then smashed the windshield of the victim's vehicle. Reynolds also allegedly smashed the windshield of the woman's vehicle.

Reynolds, of West St. Paul, was charged Friday with second-degree assault with a unsafe weapon and third-degree assault-inflicting substantial bodily harm.

India has made it clear that the flat was being installed 200 metres before the zero line and was not a violation in any manner. A private company will look after the flag maintenance; it has got this maintenance contract for 3 years.

"The victim blacked out for a moment, but when she looked up she saw defendant Reynolds holding a silver hammer", the complaint states.

One of the women told police "there was a continuing conflict between her and" a friend of Tuesday's assault victim. The victim, 25, suffered serious injuries and was taken to Regions Hospital.

The Ramsey County attorney's office asked Washington County to handle the case to avoid a conflict of interest.

Reynolds is scheduled to appear as a witness for the prosecution in Yanez's case. Bail was set at $90,000 each, and all three are due back in court on Monday, according to the St. Paul Star Tribune.

The couple's 4-year-old daughter was in the auto during the incident.

After the final shot, Reynolds frantically yelled: "You just killed my boyfriend!" She also said that since the shooting, she has not been able to find stable employment because too many people recognized her from the viral video.
