A 45-year-old Gaston County woman is accused of whacking her son and 2-year-old grandson with a samurai sword late Monday.
Mechelle Diane Willis was arguing with her son when she swung the sword – which was in a wooden sheath – at his head, Observer news partner WBTV reported.
Her son was holding her 2-year-old grandson at the time, the station reported.
Willis’ son and grandson were treated at a hospital and released, according to WBTV.
Gaston County Police arrested Willis and charged her with assault with a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon with a child present and assault on a child under 12, all misdemeanors, Gaston County Jail records show.
Willis was jailed on $10,000 bail.
