Police: Woman Slapped, Threatened To Kill Kroger Employee

CREATED Jul 23, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A Nashville woman has been charged with slapping a Kroger employee before waving a gun and threatening to kill her after a dispute at a grocery store.

Metropolitan Nashville Police charged 43-year-old Amy Jaudon with aggravated assault following the Tuesday incident at the Kroger on Murfreesboro Road.

A Davidson County affidavit said Jaudon was involved in a verbal altercation with the employee while attempting to use the Western Union Services at a counter and began calling the employee vulgar names.

Police said Jaudon demanded to speak with a manager. During that conversation, the affidavit said Jaudon called the employee a racial slur. After the employee starting yelling at the woman, Jaudon allegedly slapped her.

The employee then grabbed Jaudon, hit her, and threw her to the floor, according to the affidavit.

Once separated, Jaudon threatened to kill the employee and said she had a gun.

Police said Jaudon went outside to her vehicle, pulled out her gun from her waistband holster, and waved it around, threatening to kill the employee once again.

Several employees and customers witnessed the altercation. The affidavit said the whole incident was also caught on surveillance from the store’s security cameras.

Jaudon was booked into the Nashville jail on $15,000 bond.
