Beefing over roast beef

A woman waiting for her food in the parking lot of an Arby’s on Gallatin Pike went ballistic when she received someone else’s order by mistake. The irate customer approached a couple who had just received a sack of food she believed was hers and began demanding they hand over the grub. “The suspect then got out of her vehicle with an aluminum baseball bat and threatened to hit the victim,” police say. “The victim’s boyfriend drove out of the parking lot, and the suspect followed right behind them.” When the driver slowed down to stop for a red light, the 26-year-old suspect rammed into the back of their car before speeding away. Police tracked down the woman a short time later and arrested her for aggravated assault and vandalism.

Barefoot, pregnant and pissed

A pregnant woman went to pick up her boyfriend at a barbershop, but when she arrived he wasn’t finished getting his hair cut. The woman, 25, began yelling at the victim because they already were running late for a doctor’s appointment, and she asked the barber if he had anything she could use to hit him. The suspect then took off her shoes, grabbed a chair and began hitting the victim, cutting his left elbow, police say. The pregnant perp ended up missing her ultrasound because she was picked up for domestic assault and carted off to jail.

The next Thong Girl?

Police received a call about a woman with no pants on at a bus stop on Nolensville Road. Upon arrival, officers observed the female suspect wearing “some sort of ripped-up cloth as a thong.” The woman, 43, also kept “lifting up her shirt and toying with it, revealing what little it covered,” according to police. The exhibitionist was covered up with a blanket, taken downtown and booked for indecent exposure.

Hell hath no fury

A female suspect showed up at her ex-boyfriend’s apartment to retrieve some belongings and, after letting herself in with her own key, found her former flame in bed with another woman. The defendant began breaking items inside the residence before storming out to her vehicle, police say. The ex followed her outside, at which point the 39-year-old suspect threatened to run over him. When the victim failed to go back inside, the woman put her car in gear and drove toward him, instead crashing into the front steps. Responding officers arrested the scorned woman for aggravated assault.
