‘Your Kids Will Bury You': York Woman Charged in June Assault
A West Alabama woman was arrested in Sumter County Saturday and charged with two crimes following an assault in June that allegedly involved a stun gun, a pistol and a vehicle.
According to court documents filed Tuesday, a 27-year-old Texas woman was standing outside an apartment complex on Campbell Street in York, Alabama on June 13 when three cars full of women drove past, calling her and two friends "all sorts of names."
According to the incident report, two women got out of the cars, and one of them pushed the victim to the ground and started punching her. The victim reportedly got up and began to fight back when another woman, 29-year-old Erica Cook, pulled out a stun gun and tased the victim three times until she was back on the ground, unable to move.
Cook then allegedly got back into her car, put it in drive and stomped on the gas, trying to run the victim over.
The Texas woman told police she was able to get to her feet and avoid the vehicle, then Cook allegedly got out of the car, pointed a pistol at her and said: "I will shoot you in the face; your kids will bury you."
The women reportedly left the scene without further violence, and the victim told police she went to a local emergency room for injuries she received during the altercation.
Police caught up with Cook on Saturday, and charged the York woman with second-degree assault and menacing with a firearm for the June incident. She was also charged with harassment in an unrelated case.
She remained in the Sumter County Jail in Livingston Thursday afternoon.
