NEWINGTON, Conn. (AP) -- A Connecticut mother has posted bail after being charged with pulling a gun and threatening another woman at a Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant.

Police say Tawana Bourne, 30, brandished a .380-caliber handgun and chambered a round during an argument at the children’s game and pizza restaurant in Newington on Monday night. Police say both women were at the restaurant with their children.

Restaurant workers called police, who charged Bourne with reckless endangerment, risk of injury to children, threatening and breach of peace. She was freed after posting $50,000 bail and was ordered to appear in New Britain Superior Court on Feb. 19.

Bourne declined to comment.

Chuck E. Cheese’s released a statement saying weapons are banned in its restaurants and managers are evaluating security.
