MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Madison police arrested a 21-year-old woman after she allegedly threatened shoppers while trying to cut in line at a toy store.

Police say several hundred shoppers were at a Toys R Us just after 10 p.m. Thursday, when the woman attempted to move to the front of the line. The store opened for Black Friday shopping at 10 p.m.

Police say other shoppers confronted the Middleton woman and she threatened to retrieve a gun and shoot them.

No gun was found but police arrested the woman on a tentative charge of disorderly conduct.

Sgt. Erik Fuhremann tells the Wisconsin State Journal that the woman is now spending her shopping money to post bond.
