Woman arrested for terrorizing inside of Popeyes
BATON ROUGE- The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office arrested 21-year-old Tyieesha Franklin for terrorizing a manager and patrons inside of a Popeyes Thursday afternoon.
EBRSO officers responded to a call Thursday afternoon to a Popeyes in the 14000 block of Wax Road where Franklin threatened management.
The manager asked a male with Franklin to pull up his pants in the business and after, Franklin started yelling and cursing at the manager.
According to EBRSO, Franklin threatened the manager and threatened to shoot the business, scaring other patrons.
The manager then asked Franklin and her guests to leave, and she yelled and cursed for barbeque sauce before leaving.
EBRSO questioned two of the people Franklin was with about the incident where they admitted that they were involved in a verbal altercation with the manager for correcting one of them about pulling up his pants.
However, the two said they did not remember if Franklin threatened to shoot the business.
EBRSO contacted a witness where they admitted Franklin was yelling, threatening the manager and attempted to fight inside the business while leaving.
When EBRSO questioned Franklin about what happened, she said that she was involved in the incident, but denied her threatening the manager and business, saying it "never" happened.
Franklin was arrested for terrorizing and disturbing the peace. According to EBRSO, Franklin had an active bench warrant for simple battery by Baker Police Department at the time of her arrest.
