The arrest report indicates that Day began making threats March 9 after information she provided to the PBSO sergeant led to the arrest of another suspected gang member, the report said.

“[Expletive] you,” Day said in one call to the sergeant’s cell phone, according to the report. “We gonna knock you off. That vest ain’t gonna stop these AK rounds. We know where you stay. We know were you live … You gonna die. This community is tired of you (putting) us in jail.”

Transcripts of the calls cited on the arrest report make it clear that Day knew the sergeant was aware of her identity, but that didn’t keep her from making the threats, according to authorities. During the calls, the sergeant calls Day by her first name and in one instance Day suggests the sergeant go to her house to settle matters.

“Why don’t you come to my house?” Day allegedly said. “You know where I stay.”

Day allegedly made 10 calls to the sergeant.
