A Fresno woman arrested in early January after police reported that she fired a gun in southeast Fresno was taken into custody again Tuesday night after officers arrested her with another firearm, Sgt. Martin Van Overbeek reported.
It's the third time this year that Christina Mejia has been hauled off to jail.
Tuesday, she was taken into custody in the 5000 block of East Lane Avenue at the same apartment complex where she was arrested on Jan. 10. She was sought on a warrant for that incident.
Van Overbeek reported that in the latest incident, Mejia was trespassing and drinking with juveniles. Officers reported that she was turning a stun gun on and off when they arrived. She dropped the stun gun and a loaded .38 caliber revolver and ran. Police caught up to her and she was booked on new weapons charges.
Never miss a local story.
Mejia had skipped a court appearance for the Jan. 10 arrest and had been on the run about a month when she was re-arrested on Feb. 20 for the warrant related to the prior weapons charges. Mejia was later released with another promise to appear in court.
