30-year-old Tawana Bourne, of Middletown, Connecticut, was at the Chuck E. Cheese in Newington with her son when she got into a fight with Shkurte Berisha, another mom at the restaurant.
During the fight Bourne allegedly pulled a .380 caliber semiautomatic handgun out of her pocket and chambered a round.
Berisha reported that the fight started when she told Bourne's five-year-old son to not push her two-year-old daughter. She said Bourne then told her to "watch your tone with my son," to which Berisha replied that Bourne should watch her child.
Bourne, who has a valid permit for the handgun, was arrested and charged with breach of peace, three counts of risk of injury to a minor, first-degree reckless endangerment and second-degree threatening. She was released on $50,000 bail.
Bourne is actively involved with There is Hope, a male mentoring program that targets at-risk youth engaging in risky behavior.
