Marion County deputies responded to a call about a woman threatening customers at a Walmart with a brick. The brick might not have been menacing enough because she eventually found a pocket knife…opened it up and then started making threats to customers with the new weapon.
Responding officers found the woman in the clothing department and ordered her to drop the knife. She responded incoherently and did NOT drop the knife. One officer shocked the woman with a taser.
They were able to get the knife away from her and place her under arrest. According to reports the woman had ingested meth earlier in the day and was taken to a hospital for an evaluation before booking.
She is facing a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
