Black Friday frenzy : Wisconsin woman Lanessa Lattimore arrested for threatening shoppers with gun
Police arrested a Wisconsin woman Thursday evening after she threatened to get a gun and shoot shoppers waiting outside a toy store for Black Friday sales.
21-year-old Lanessa Lattimore from Middleton allegedly sparked the confrontation after trying to cut in line outside Toys R Us, where hundreds of people were waiting for the doors to open at 10 p.m., police said. "Everybody was cutting in line. But there was one girl who was threatening me, so I told her that I'd shoot her," Lattimore told CNN. "I'm not a violent person, but police charged me with disorderly conduct."
Fellow shoppers tried to stop the woman from jumping ahead of them, and she responded by saying she was going to fetch a gun and shoot them. No weapon was found, but cops arrested the woman, who has not been named, on a tentative charge of disorderly conduct. She was taken to Dane County Jail. "She's now spending her shopping money to post bond," said Madison Police Sgt. Erik Fuhremann.
