MAGNA — An argument over a parking spot resulted in pumpkin throwing and knife pulling, according to charges filed Monday in 3rd District Court.
Police said a verbal fight "erupted" between a man and woman in the parking lot of Smith's grocery store, 8055 W. 3500 South, on Oct. 24. After the initial dispute, the man went into the store with his stepdaughter and when they exited, the woman came at them with a knife, the charges state.
The man punched and kicked the woman and "pushed her into a pumpkin display," according to the Unified Police Department. The woman dropped the knife, which her daughter allegedly threw into a vehicle that later fled the scene.
Prosecutors say the woman's son was at another store during the parking dispute, but arrived later to see the man "beating up his mom." The son then began throwing pumpkins at the man.
Tamala Swan-Darrett, 39, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, a third-degree felony.
