Woman Attacks Cell Phone Store Employee, Chases Others with Knife


A woman has been charged after police say she attacked an employee at a phone store and chased two people with a knife, according to WKRN.

It happened on Wednesday, March 15, around 5:30 p.m. at a T-Mobile on the 900 block of Gallatin Pike South in Madison.

Police say when they arrived to the scene, they found 60-year-old Shelia McGee in the parking lot with what appeared to be a large pocket knife.

A T-Mobile employee told police that McGhee was upset about her phone service when she pushed the employee against a wall. She then sat down and began rubbing two pocket knife blades together as if she was sharpening them before exiting the store.

Court documents state that when McGee got in the parking lot, she chased a minor who called 911 after witnessing the incident. A man stepped up to defend the minor and McGee allegedly chased after the man.

No injuries were reported following the incident.

Police were about to review surveillance that supports the statements from the victims. Officers also found the two knife blades.

McGee was charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Her bond has been set at $150,000.
