Woman arrested after threatening to shoot down business owner in Brook Park

BROOK PARK, Ohio – An East Cleveland woman, 36, was arrested, then released, at about 1 p.m. Nov. 15 after she threatened to kill the owner of Direct Detail on West 137th Street.

The woman had taken her car to Direct Detail for repairs and was unhappy with the result. The business owner said he didn’t allow the woman to enter the building because, while standing in the doorway, she threatened to grab her gun and shoot him in the head.

The woman also threatened to damage vehicles parked on the property. Two Direct Detail employees corroborated the manager’s story.

The woman denied making threats. Her vehicle passenger, the father of her baby, said he didn’t hear her threaten anyone.

Police placed the woman in handcuffs, then learned that her driver’s license had been suspended. Berea Municipal Court advised police that they could cite and release the woman, which they did.
