According to Tahlequah Police Chief Nate King, 48-year-old Amber Henson initially became upset because the restaurant’s Wi-Fi wasn’t working, but soon directed her fury at a group of teen boys.
“The boys were kind of in the way of the drink fountain and she had to squeeze through them to get her drink,” King told the Tahlequah Daily Press, “and she got agitated and spilled her drink on one of them.”
Henson was then reportedly kicked out of the restaurant and waited outside “glaring” through the window.
“When they left she confronted them and pulled a knife and said, ‘If you want some of me, come on,’” said King.
The teens then called police who identified the suspect through social media.
Authorities say Henson didn’t deny pulling the knife but claimed she had done so in self-defense. She now faces one charge of assault with a dangerous weapon on a minor.
