A Memphis woman is looking at a mandatory minimum of ten years behind bars after she allegedly fired a shot into the Memphis field office of the United States Secret Service and live-streamed the assault on Facebook.
On October 19, Raven Jones, 41, was allegedly using her phone to livestream on Facebook when she approached the entrance door to the Secret Service field office — a building that was bustling with staff, according to a press release from the Western District of Tennessee’s U.S. Attorney’s Office.
“The door was clearly marked as entry to the United States Secret Service offices and Jones arrived during normal business hours on a workday; the office was staffed with agents, task force officers, administrative staff, and visitors,” the release states.
“Jones allegedly then produced a 9mm handgun and fired a single shot into the wall next to the doorway, placed the weapon on the floor, and raised her hands above her head,” it continues. “Federal officers entered the hallway and detained Jones.”
The case against Jones is the result of a joint investigation between the Secret Service and the FBI. It will be prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney J. William Crow of the National Security and Civil Rights Unit.
“If convicted, Jones faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years in federal prison for the firearms charge and a maximum statutory penalty of life imprisonment along with a $250,000 fine,” according to the release. “Any sentence, however, would be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which consider several variables.”
According to an affidavit, Jones said she was upset with former government workers, WREG reports.
“I came here for a confrontation today with the U.S. Secret Service,” she stated.
“Jones is currently being held at the Shelby County Jail on a $60,000 bond, where she is also facing local charges of reckless endangerment and vandalism of $1,000 or less,” WREG reports.
Meanwhile, the Secret Service has, in recent days, been making headlines of its own.
Last Tuesday, Fox News host Jesse Watters announced that they have “been lying to you about everything” relating to the mysterious bag of cocaine discovered at the White House.
“The Secret Service has responded to Primetime’s FOIA over the White House cocaine investigation,” Watters revealed on X. “We now know they’ve been lying to you about everything.”
“After telling us they didn’t find any DNA and destroying the bag of coke, the documents tell us there’s three tubes of DNA that they didn’t destroy,” he wrote. “They did find DNA on the baggie- it was processed and moved to an evidence vault for preservation.”
“They now have an insurance policy,” Watters warned.

And, on the same day as Watters’ “exclusive,” the Secret Service was slammed on social media after agents assigned to protect Naomi Biden, granddaughter to President Joe Biden and daughter to Hunter, fired at thugs who were allegedly breaking into a parked, unoccupied car and reportedly missed their target.
“This past Sunday, November 12, US Secret Service agents assigned to the protection of Naomi Biden, the granddaughter of President Joe Biden, observed several people breaking into their parked and unoccupied SUV in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington DC,” self-defense attorney Andrew F. Branca reported on X.
“Their response was to discharge a firearm–apparently in the absence of any legal justification for the use of deadly defensive force,” he said. “Can we make it make sense?”
