Suspect In Baltimore Co. Wal-Mart Bleach Fight Appears In Court

BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) — A woman accused of throwing bleach on her former boyfriend’s fiancee appeared in court Tuesday. It happened inside a Wal-Mart in Baltimore County.

Jessica Kartalija has details on the hearing.

The bizarre love triangle turned dangerous for one woman and a host of other shoppers caught in the crossfire. The defendant in this case is still behind bars.

Theresa Jefferson, 33, is accused of throwing bleach and Pine Sol on her ex-boyfriend Calvin Parnell’s fiancee in a Baltimore County Wal-Mart Saturday. She and 18 other shoppers were taken to area hospitals for treatment. Now a judge has ordered her bail will stand at $350,000.

“Basically we were asking for a bail that would assure the safety of our victims. I think $350,000 will do that,” said John Cox, prosecuting attorney.

Charging documents say the victim, Ebony Odoms, and Parnell had filed a restraining order against Jefferson, saying she had threatened Odoms. The weekend incident at Wal-Mart happened before that restraining order could be served.

The boyfriend at the center of this bizarre love triangle appeared in court for the bail hearing, as did his father—in support of the defendant, not his son.

“I’m not going to defend my son when he’s wrong. He’s wrong,” said Fred Culp. “He was messing with that girl a long time ago. What am I going to defend him for if he’s wrong?”

“It really is the tail wagging the dog here when you consider the family of the alleged victim, Mr. Parnell, was here to indicate that their son and the other alleged victim had engaged in a pattern of harassment of Miss Jefferson,” said defense attorney Warren Brown.

Parnell, who has a 6-year-old son with Jefferson, is on probation for assaulting her two months ago.

“Theresa is a real nice girl. Theresa didn’t take two charges for that boy,” Culp said.

Jefferson is charged with assault, destruction of property and harassment.

    Sounds like out of the whole bunch of them they can’t seem to behave in a civilized manner even if their life depended on it.

    The boyfriend sounds like one POS. Ms. Jefferson…was it really worth it? Now you have to pay for the stupidity and the injuries that you caused on innocent people. All this on a stupid boyfriend. Now, DSS may take the child and placed him in foster care unless relatives decide to take over. I don’t think the boyfriend sounds like a fit parent especially if he assaulted the mother of his child two months ago. Poor kid who is in the middle of all of this…a mother in jail and a father who is a domestic partner abuser.

    I swear, it is just impossible to date anyone from Maryland black or white. People here have the worst kind of baggage. Everything from prior criminal convictions to all sorts of past or present domestic problems. Most of the black women you try to date have multiple children and often from differnent men. This is why I found, dated, and ultimately married a woman from another country. I just could not find a non-perp or single woman without some kind of relationship destroying baggage attached to her. The Baltimore area in particular has the worst kinds of human dirt bags you could ever wish on your worst enemies. Truly some foul and awlful people here. This Walmart incident just proves my case.
