19-year-old Destiny Lashaea Banks had a domestic altercation with her mother, Laquisha Banks, at her Edgehill Avenue residence on March 30th. Laquisha told responding officers that Destiny had entered her house and grabbed a drill for her nails without permission before kicking open her bedroom door, leaving visible damage. When Laquisha tried to remove Destiny from the house, a scuffle ensued, during which Destiny grabbed her by the neck to strangle her while trying to punch her. After Laquisha got away, she called the police, and Destiny left. She provided them with Destiny’s information and advised that she wanted to press charges for the occurrence. A warrant was issued for her arrest, and Destiny Banks was later arrested for domestic assault and vandalism on June 9th.
