NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A woman and her two sisters have been arrested and booked on multiple charges after making threats against her husband in a Walmart parking lot.
Officials said the two sisters chased the woman’s husband with their vehicle, endangering several people – including nine children inside the vehicles. The entire incident was caught on tape.
The woman was identified as Samantha Meneese. Her sisters were identified as Alicia Kuwamoto and Danielle Arguello.
According to several affidavits, officers with the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department were called to the Walmart on Dickerson Pike for a domestic situation on Monday afternoon.
Witnesses reported vehicles driven by Kuwamoto and Arguelle were chasing after a vehicle driven by Rolando Meneese, Sr. They struck his vehicle several times and at one point blocked him in.
Samantha Meneese was also inside one of the vehicles driven by her sisters. After her husband was blocked in, she reportedly jumped out, started yelling at him and hitting his car. Witnesses said she then asked her sisters for a tire iron.
Several children were inside the vehicles at the time. Their ages ranged from under 2 years to 15 years old. Witnesses told police many of the children could be seen hanging out the windows during the assault.
When officers arrived on scene, they took the three women into custody.
Kuwamoto was charged with six counts of child endangerment, false imprisonment, and reckless endangerment with a motor vehicle.
Arguelle was charged with two counts of child endangerment and false imprisonment.
Samantha Meneese was charged with disorderly conduct. She was also charged with vandalism for a separate incident where she allegedly went to the home of Takeyla Hanger on Tuesday, believing her husband to be at the address with another woman.
When police arrived on the scene, they found heavy damage to the door. According to the affidavit, Samantha Meneese told them she would not leave and would continue to cause problems if they issued a citation. At that time, they took her into custody and charged her with vandalism.
