Celebrity jeweler Dawnella Joie Jager may be slapping celebrity jewelry on stars such as Kim Kardashian, but she also is facing assault charges after attacking and punching a man after an argument over a parking spot ensued.
According to the Daily Mail UK, It all went down in Manhattan on Thursday morning around 11:30 am when Jager decided to fly into a fit of rage after Meng Dong tried to pull into the same parking spot as she was trying to get into! Instead of calmly handling the situation (apparently calm isn’t something people do in New York), Jager jumped out of her car, opened Dong’s door and punched him in the chest. If that wasn’t enough she took an umbrella and beat the guy with it! Of course this is all “alleged” until all is said and done in court.
After the incident, Jager was tracked down and arrested at Soixante Neuf, her upscale boutique in West Village. According to court records, Jager faces not only charges of misdemeanor assault but also attempted assault AND a violation for harassment. Ouch! She will have to head to court to face the law.
In addition to her boutique, Jager sells pieces that her website describes as “unique, feminine, bold, yet delicate”. Her fashion style may be delicate, but her personality sure shows quite bold!
Jager also has a handbag and shoe line. According to her official website, her biography gives us the following info
Joie Jager, the designer of Soixante Neuf Inc., was born in Los Angeles and raised in Northern California. This self-taught artist has been designing since her late teens. At 18 she designed her first collection, a trendy bustier line with hand sewn semi-precious beads. After that she moved to New York City to study at New York University where she caught the acting bug. After several student films and crazy New York living, she moved back to Los Angeles and continued with her acting. On the set of one of her films, to pass the time, she began making herself jewelry. About a year or so later she began selling to local Los Angeles stores. It was then that a jewelry rep “discovered” her designs. The hobby became a full time venture. Now Joie’s designs can be seen across the country from New York to Los Angeles, to Europe and Japan, and in magazines such as WWD, InStyle, and Lucky, to name a few.
Here’s hoping that people will still decide to dish out the dollars to support Joie after this brush with the law.
