A Connecticut woman was arrested at the children’s restaurant Chuck E. Cheese in Newington on Monday after she was accused of pulling her gun and chambering a round while threatening another mother.
According to Newington police, 30-year-old Tawana Bourne brandished a .380 semi-automatic handgun and chambered a round while arguing with another woman, the New Haven Register reported. Both women were at the restaurant with children.
Restaurant employees quickly called police, who separated the women and confiscated Bourne’s handgun. Police said that Bourne had a legal Connecticut permit to carry the weapon.
“Bourne was charged with breach of peace, three counts of risk of injury to a minor, second-degree threatening and first-degree reckless endangerment,” according to the Register. She was released on $50,000 bond.
Bourne’s Facebook page indicated that she was a social worker and involved with There Is Hope, a program to mentor “at-risk” males who could otherwise find themselves in the custody of the Connecticut Department of Youth and Families.
She told WJW 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 explained. “Very, very involved in the community.”
“Tawana then believes she was delivered from the demons of addiction through prayer at a church service,” according to a profile that had been removed from the Urban Alliance’s website by the time of publication.
“Tawana is the Vice-President of the Parent Teacher Organization at her sons’ school, and on the steering committee for CT Parent Power ‘a parent-led organization with a mission to engage, educate and mobilize parents to act on children’s issues,'” the profile said.

Trump furious with Steve King for crippling his re-election chances in Iowa: CNN’s April Ryan
Sitting in with CNN's Victor Blackwell on Sunday morning, contributor April Ryan relayed that Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is in big trouble not only with his party over his latest comments about rape and incest, but that Donald Trump is aggravated with him too because he may impact the president's chances in Iowa in the 2020 election.
With King reeling from the fallout from his own comments made during an appearance earlier in the week, Ryan said that his days may be numbered because senior Republicans want him gone too.
‘Go look at President Trump’s Twitter’: Portland right-wing rally organizer claims ‘mission success’
The organizer of a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon claimed the event was a "success" after President Donald Trump attacked Portlandiers protesting the group.
"A confluence of protesters on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum merged on Portland’s waterfront Saturday in a tense but relatively uneventful face-off that brought national attention, including a tweet in the hours before the protest by President Trump decrying the city’s signature anti-fascist movement," the Oregonian reported Saturday.
When a similar right-wing rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed Heather Heyer, Trump argued there were "fine people" on both sides of the "Unite the Right" rally.
Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."
