Tawana Bourne was arrested at a Chuck E. Cheese's restaurant in Newington, Connecticut, on Monday night after allegedly pulling out a .380 semi-automatic handgun and chambering a round while threatening another mom (video below).
Both women were at the restaurant with children.
Restaurant employees called the police, who took the handgun from Bourne, who had a legal permit to carry the weapon.
Bourne was charged with breach of peace, risk of injury to a minor, second-degree threatening and first-degree reckless endangerment, reports the New Haven Register.
Bourne, a social worker who works with at-risk males, told WJW-TV that she had “pursued her dream of working with children after rediscovering God and conquering a crack cocaine addiction.”
“I’m a very good person,” Bourne stated. “Very, very involved in the community.”
