Jasmine Hartin arrested AGAIN after row with ex as she says Belize cop she shot dead was protecting her after sex attack

SOCIALITE Jasmine Hartin has been arrested AGAIN in Belize after confronting her husband in a restaurant about their kids while on bail for allegedly killing a cop in Belize.

Hartin's detention came as she claimed she accidentally shot dead her pal, Superintendent Henry Jemmott, with his own pistol after he urged her to arm herself when she told him she had been sexually assaulted.



The details of the charge were not immediately clear.

But it comes after Hartin clashed with her partner Andrew Ashcroft, the son of Britain's Lord Ashcroft, on Tuesday when she tried to see their four-year-old twins Elle and Charlie.

She later told DailyMail.com she was warned by her attorney that authorities would seek to revoke her £10,000 bail over the row that unfolded at the swank Alaia Belize resort in San Pedro island, which she operated with Andrew before Jemmot's death.

The warning proved true when she arrived yesterday for her daily check-in appointment.

Speaking to reporters before she was taken into the police station to be booked, Hartin said: "I’m being detained for trying to see my children. 

"This is illegal, I’m being detained illegally. This is bogus. This is absolutely ridiculous."

The mum-of-two has been charged with manslaughter by negligence after she shot Jemmott dead on May 28.

Meanwhile, Hartin explained how she confided in her close pal Jemmott after she was sexually assaulted at a party days before he died.

"I was at a party the weekend before and I was going to bed when a guy got very aggressive with me," the mum-of-two told DailyMail.com.

"He threw me onto the bed, my head smoked off a concrete wall.

"He was trying to kiss me and pull my pants off. I was scared I was going to be raped but I fought him off."

Hartin claims she then rang her friend Jemmott because he didn't live far from the capital city of Belmopan, where the attack happened.

"I grabbed my bag and I ran out into the road and that's where I rang Henry," she explained.

"I waited for an hour before he could have dispatch come and pick me up. About an hour later he came to collect me."



The mum-of-two claimed Jemmott urged her to get a firearms licence after the frightening attack.

It was days later, on May 28, when he was showing her how to use his pistol when it allegedly went off unexpectedly in her hands and killed him.

"Henry told me, take my firearm, I want you to get comfortable with it," she said.

"That whole night he said you need to learn to protect yourself, we need to get you a gun licence."

Hartin reportedly insisted she shot Jemmott by accident on May 28 after he had suffered a single gunshot wound to the head.

Police Commissioner Chester Williams said a single gunshot was heard and cops found a woman on a pier with what appeared to be blood on her arms and on her clothing.

"Henry was my friend," she told DailyMail.com.

"It was an accident, I didn't flee the scene. The first thing I did was call the police myself.

"There's not a day that goes by that I don't cry for the loss of a friend and the pain the family are going through.

"It's something that will never leave me. Henry was a great man. He was protecting me."

It comes after footage emerged this week showing blonde Hartin confronting her partner Andrew Ashcroft in San Pedro.

Jasmine could be heard desperately pleading with her husband Andrew — the youngest son of Tory peer Lord Ashcroft — to let her see their two young twins.

Speaking to reporters as she was being arrested, Hartin said: "I’m being detained for trying to see my children. This is illegal, I’m being detained illegally."

On June 9, after eight days in scorpion-infested Hattieville Prison, Hartin was released to an undisclosed location and forced to report to a local police station in Belize once-a-day.

On Tuesday, she filmed on her phone as she chased down Andrew, 43, and pleaded with him to see their two twins Charlie and Elle.

Confronting him at the hotel they run together in Belize, she says in the video: "Why won’t you let me see the kids Andrew? Why won’t you let me see the children?

"Why are you stopping me from being at my house and seeing my kids Andrew? You don’t want to be on camera?

"Why are you keeping my children from me Andrew? You lied to my whole family. Let me see my children."

In a second video, also published online, she confronted by guards as she walks with a friend towards Andrew in the distance at the hotel.

She says: "I’m walking up right now to try to see my kids and all of the girls are on standby. And there’s Andrew too, Andrew’s running so I can’t see my children."

She added: "Security is literally stopping me from seeing my children right now. Wow, so you’ve been instructed by Andrew to stop me from seeing my children? That’s correct?"

Referring to her common-law husband Andrew, she adds: "He’s gonna rot in hell for this. Like I’m not going through enough."

Hartin went on to warn her partner that she was preparing to air embarrassing secrets about his past — including his alleged arrests in Dallas and in Florida.
