Knoxville police arrested 35-year-old Nashea Brown this week after she reportedly was found partially naked and using an axe inside a Walmart. It happened at the Walbrook Drive location just off I-40 in the Cedar Bluff area.
Brown was found in the sporting goods section with an axe and a knife tucked into her bra. The officers ordered her to drop the ax but she allegedly refused to comply. One officer attempted to use a taser but it was ineffective. Another used theirs and Brown was taken into custody.
She is charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and vandalism up to $1000.
The store estimated more than $500 worth of property was damaged.
