According to the Affidavit of Complaint and arrest warrant, Strickland-Golden was released from jail early Wednesday on a $20,000 bond. She will make her first appearance in Shelby County Court on Thursday at 8:30 a.m.

After FOX13 News exclusively recorded Strickland-Golden's fit of rage, a Memphis Police officer was advised that Brandon Harbert was involved in a verbal altercation with her, the Affidavit of Complaint said. Harbert said she went outside with her 4-year-old child and he heard several gunshots fired from the balcony of the Avery Park Place Apartments.

He told police Strickland-Golden broke the front window to his apartment and pointed a gun, a .22 caliber Derringer, to his head.

Thursday after a warrant for her arrest was issued, Strickland-Golden went to the Airways Station and was advised of her rights. She waived her rights and she gave police a written statement of admission. She told police after she fired off a shot on the balcony, she smashed the apartment window and pointed an empty gun to the man's head.

Strickland-Golden is being held at Jail East.
