Watercooler Talk
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Police said the mother of an elementary school student drank a 40-ounce bottle of malt liquor before brandishing a sword in her child's school. The woman apparently intended to confront the parents of another child who had been in a spitting match with her child.

According to court records, an employee at Riverview Elementary School in Memphis reported a drunk woman armed with a sword was running through the halls of the school and had threatened to cut her.

Officers who arrived on the scene retrieved a black cane that concealed the blade.

The woman was charged with aggravated assault and having a weapon on school property.
