A mother reportedly pulled a gun at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant Monday night (Feb. 4). The woman pulled out the gun, chambered a round, and argued with another mother according to a report from Wednesday (Feb. 6). Understandably, it led to the woman with the gun being arrested and brought up on charges.
Police have charged 30-year-old Tawana Bourne with three counts of reckless endangerment, risk of injury to children, threatening, and breach of peace. She has already posted a bail of $50,000 and now must appear in court on Feb. 19 to face the charges. What began as an afternoon out with their kids certainly turned into something different in a matter of mere moments.
It is unclear why one woman drew her weapon on the other woman, but both were at the restaurant with their children. The two women apparently were in an argument, though, that had led to an employee calling the police. Something set off Bourne, who then pulled out a .380 semi-automatic handgun and chambered a round (loading it).
Having to deal with a gun at Chuck E. Cheese seems like an odd occurrence because there are signs posted at all locations about weapons not being allowed on the premises.
