A woman was arrested Thursday morning after she wielded a hammer while acting aggressively toward a bus outside a Pulaski County elementary school, police reported.

Deputies with the Pulaski County sheriff's office went to Daisy Bates Elementary School at 14300 Dineen Drive south of Little Rock after getting a call about a disturbance.

Authorities spoke with a bus driver who said a woman, later identified as 31-year-old Ashley Patrice Mahomes of Little Rock, approached her bus wielding a large hammer, according to a police report.

The driver told deputies that Mahomes was acting "aggressive" and was verbally abusive, the report said.

Deputies searched Mahomes' vehicle and found a hammer as well as a small amount of marijuana in her wallet, the report said.

Mahomes was arrested at the school around 8:45 a.m. and faces a felony charge of aggravated assault and a misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance.

She was being held at the Pulaski County jail Friday without bail.

A court date is scheduled for June 6.

    Not that I agree with you, but let's say blacks do commit more crime. WHAT EXACTLY IS THE POINT? How does it move us anywhere near solving the problem of crime? What it does do is escalate a ridiculous and tiresome tirade of racial insults. When a person insults you about your race, does it make you more or less likely to cooperate with that person? Again, how does this help solve the problem of crime? Both sides need to stop with the inflammatory racial remarks. If you feel provoked, ignore it. *Please don't feed the trolls*

    AuntPetunia let me tell you some truths. Let me start by saying that there are many black people that have values and believe in working hard for a living. In the hood, these values sometimes get lost. It wouldn't be bad if these mothers and fathers only had one child, but it's very come for them to have more kids than the average middle class family. Many of them have drug and mental problems. If you look at some of these mugshots, many of them look like their mom was either drinking or on drugs real bad during the pregnancy. The women that decides to bring life into the world and are the main teachers of children are now screwed up in the head. Now, you have an assembly line of bad products that our public schools can not fixed.

    Let us stipulate that all that you say is correct. How does your assertion help to fight crime?

    I assume "they" are the BLM, Al and Jesse. Do not take on their racism and make it your own. Do not take the bait and allow hatred to grow like wildfire. The best way to stop a merry go round is to get off and refuse to push it. Let's pray for a revival of unity against the real enemy, crime!
