GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Charges against a woman arrested in Oct. 2015 for threatening another woman with a gun outside a Goodlettsville Dollar General have been dismissed.

Police reported Lachanta Tyler, 35, drew her weapon after a woman noticed two children left alone inside Tyler’s vehicle and asked if she thought it was a good idea to leave them unattended in the car.

According to an affidavit, Tyler became belligerent and told the victim she would “pop a cap in her fat a**.”

When the victim tried to obtain Tyler’s license plate number, Tyler reportedly threatened to kill the woman, pulled out a handgun and pointed it toward her and others standing near the store.

Tyler’s tag was obtained and she was also identified in a photo lineup.

She was booked into the Metro jail and charged with intentional aggravated assault. Her bond was set at $50,000.

In Jan. 2016 Tyler received a certificate of completion for a violence interrupted course. The charge of aggravated assault was dismissed against her on Feb. 11, 2016.
