A warrant issued Tuesday against Jamesha M. Nevarez, 46, also known as Misha Davis, for failing to comply with terms of her release from jail May 31 after a tirade at the Bonners Ferry Senior Center, has been served and she is in custody in the Bonners Ferry Jail and scheduled to appear in court at 1:30 p.m. today.

Nevarez was charged with criminal trespassing and resisting and obstructing law enforcement after a tumultuous two-month stint as chief executive officer of the Seniors Center came to an end May 31 following a series of incidents that raised serious questions about her mental stability.

Bonners Ferry Police Chief Willie Cowell gave an account in his affidavit of probable cause on her arrest.

“She told me I killed Brian Drake,” he said afterwards, referring to a notorious 2020 Bonners Ferry murder, “and by the time I had her in cuffs, she almost had me convinced!”

Cowell and assistant police chief Jeremy Garrett were dispatched to the Seniors Center at about 1:30 p.m. Friday, May 31, after the board voted to terminate her. She wasn’t there when officers arrived, but they agreed to wait, aware of her volatility.

“Nevarez has a well-documented history in Bonners Ferry alone; of being volatile, unpredictable and of maintaining baseless self-entitled superiority, over her contrived, conjured up threats, or challenges to her fantasy like notions and schemes,” Cowell wrote. “In recent weeks, Nevarez has been making completely unfounded outlandish claims of weapons, drug and sex trafficking coverups by local officials dating back to the early 1990s.”

She returned at 2:30 p.m., and it wasn’t long before the switch flipped and she was in-your-face confrontational, cursing, reeling off conspiracy theories and making far-fetched, baseless accusations against numerous people, even those trying to help her.

In the midst of the tirade, a staffer agreed Davis was no longer welcome in the building, yet still she refused to leave and fighting while being arrested.

She continued her belligerent behavior later in court, prompting the judge to have her removed from the courtroom. She was later released on $800 bond on condition she submit to drug and alcohol testing, which she failed to have, as well as to be evaluated for competency.
