Gabriella Maria Reynado, who was crowned the 2019 Miss Alice Queen, was booked into the county jail early Saturday morning.
According to Alice police Chief Aniceto "Cheto"Perez , Reynado went to an ex-boyfriend’s home when she discovered he had a new girlfriend. She was in the backyard banging on the windows and making a mess.
Reynado’s ex-boyfriend’s called the police, but Reynado left before police could arrive. Officer Homero Mendoza was questioning the victim when Reynado called the victim’s phone. The phone call was placed on speaker and the officer heard Reynado tell the victim that she knew he was with another female and that she was going to "harm the female" and going to use the victim’s own firearms to "kill both (the victim) and the female."
The officer left the residence and Reynado arrived back at the residence on the 1800 block of Cenesia Street. The victim called police again.
When Officer Mendoza and his supervisor showed up, Reynado was placed in handcuffs and taken to the Jim Wells County jail. She was charged with terroristic threat causing fear of imminent serious bodily injury.
According to Miss Alice Pageant officials and Reynado’s Facebook page, Reynaldo relinquished her crown after the incident occurred.
