A 46-year-old woman was arrested in east Arkansas on Monday after she reportedly held four minors at gunpoint last week, police said.
On Wednesday at about 10 a.m., Wynne police officers responded to a suspicious persons call on Morningside Drive, according to a news release by the department. When police arrived they found four minors lying on the ground with a woman, identified as 46-year-old Jerri Kelly, holding a gun as she stood over them, the release states.
According to police, the children told officers they were selling discount cards for a school athletic program.
Authorities investigated the incident and arrested Kelly on Monday evening, booking her into Cross County jail, police said. Kelly remained there Tuesday afternoon, an online jail roster indicates.
Kelly is charged with four counts each of aggravated assault, false imprisonment, and endangering the welfare of a minor, according to police.
