Woman in Colorado jail after demanding arrest

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - A woman who tried to break into a Colorado jail after demanding that she be arrested instead of her brother got her wish.

Twenty-year-old Monique Deshawn Armstrong was being held at the Mesa County jail Tuesday, a day after authorities say she called 911 to demand she be booked and her brother released. The Daily Sentinel reports her brother was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Sheriff's officials say that soon after the call, Armstrong got past the chain-link and razor wire fence that surrounds the jail yard. They say she was found there throwing landscaping rocks at a jail window

Armstrong asked to be arrested, and the deputies obliged.

A few hours later, her brother posted bond and was released.
