The Citizen reports that Amanda Lynn Jordan, 40, was arrested and charged with burglary at a home in Mansfield on Monday.

Deputies woke up Jordan, who told them she lived at the home but was not involved in a burglary. She then asked deputies to push the air mattress to the side of the pool towards the pool ladder. Deputies used a pool cleaning brush to push the mattress to the edge, but it tipped over and Jordan fell in the water.

Jordan was taken to jail.

Later that morning, a person who was watching the home reported that security video showed Jordan trying to get into the home with a hammer and a knife.

The property owners told deputies that Jordan had once lived at the home, but not for months and that they wanted to press charges.
