Mom Pulls Gun On Another Mom At Chuck E. Cheese [VIDEO]
First off, miraculously no one was hurt in this incident. Monday night, February 4th around 8pm in Newington, Conn., police arrested 30-year-old Tawana Bourne after she allegedly pulled a loaded gun during an argument with another parent in a Chuck E. Cheese children's restaurant. A witness claiming to have been other woman in the argument said the altercation began after Bourne's son pushed her 2-year-old daughter off of a ride. Did Chuck E. yell "Don't shoot"?
According to WFSB-TV News, Police say Bourne "brandished a .380 semiautomatic handgun and chambered a round" during a verbal altercation at the restaurant. Newington Police Sgt. Chris Perry said,
"That's a step up from just having a handgun in your possession. There's non-verbal intent there. So, that's how I'm assuming the victim took it and that's how we took it."
Police said that Bourne had a state permit for the handgun, but that both the weapon and permit were seized in her arrest. A judge will decide if she gets them back. She was charged with reckless endangerment, risk of injury to children, threatening and breach of peace. And get this, Chuck E. Cheese does has a policy against bringing any firearms on the premises of any of their restaurants. Just wondering, should they?
Don't let this discourage you from visiting Chuck E. Cheese's.
