A mother pulled a gun on another mother at a Connecticut Chucky Cheese after an argument over their kids got heated. According to The Inquisitr on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, the Newington Chucky Cheese employees called the police and luckily they got there before the firearm was discharged.
Police found that the gun toting mother, Tawana Bourne, had a valid permit for the firearm. By the time law enforcement arrived at the Chucky Cheese restaurant, Bourne had gone as far as to chamber a round before the fight could be broken up between the two women.
The other mother, Shkurte Berisha of New Britain, said she was talking to Bourne's five-year-old son after he pushed her 2-year-old daughter off a ride. Bourne told Bersiha to "watch her tune with her son," according to the Hartford Courant. It was then that Bersiha said she heard two clicks and saw Bourne pointing a gun at her.
Bourne was arrested on three counts of risk of injury to a minor, threatening in the second degree and reckless endangerment in the first degree. She was freed on $50,000 bail. Bourne is due in New Britain Superior Court on Feb. 19.
Chucky Cheese headquarters released a statement addressing this incident. They praised the employees at the Connecticut location for their fast response, the statement also said that the incident has prompted Chucky Cheese to provide a more official training around dangerous incidents such at his one that occurred Monday night, Feb. 4, 2013.
Chucky Cheese also said in their statement that weapons are banned from inside Chucky Cheese restaurants, even if the gun holder has a permit, such as Bourne did.
