Drunk Mom Allegedly Runs Through School With Sword

Police said the mother of an elementary school student drank a 40 ounce bottle of malt liquor before brandishing a sword in her child's school.

The woman, 32, apparently intended to confront the parents of another child who had been in a spitting match with her child the previous day.

According to court records, an employee at Riverview Elementary School in Memphis reported a drunk woman armed with a sword was running through the halls of the school and had threatened to cut her.

Officers who arrived on the scene retrieved a black cane that concealed the blade.

The woman charged with aggravated assault and having a weapon on school property.

    I sure hope metal detection is something schools are going to get in the near future. This kind of thing should not have happened at all. Small price to pay to have pricless protection.

    It amazes me that some people do not mature or grow up when they have children!

    Maybe she got the point.

    And these people are allowed to conceive children... know where that child will end up some day if this is the example the parent uses.

    What a crazy woman! She should have more strict charges than that and I doubt she is a pirate fan, as a matter of fact she may hate ECU, considering this happened IN MEMPHIS, home of the TIGERS, a different C-USA school. DUH!

    Guess her behavior will cause the school to ponder purchasing a means for 'metal detection' at the entrances. Either her child is totally embarrassed, or has a new kind of 'notoriety'.
