CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCCU) — A woman was arrested on Wednesday after reportedly threatening a postal worker with a gun.
The Champaign Police Department said they received information on Tuesday that the woman threatened the worker in the 100 block of West Harvard Street.
On Wednesday, police were called to interview Kanesha Thaggard, 29, of Champaign.
Police say they found Thaggard had a BB gun that matched the description of the gun used in making the threat.
At first, police wrote Thaggard a citation for disorderly conduct and assault, then she attempted to flee the officers in her car.
Police eventually caught up to Thaggard and arrested her on charges of resisting a peace officer, fleeing a peace officer, and driving on a suspended license.
