Mom banned from child’s school – not for fender-bender but for then pulling a gun

A 31-year-old S.C. mom was ordered to stay away from her child’s elementary school after she pulled out a gun during an argument near the school’s carpool line, media outlets reported.

Anderson County deputies charged Tenisha Kallenbach with displaying a firearm in a public building after they said she argued with another woman. The pair got in a minor fender-bender in front of Concrete Primary School in Easley, according to the Associated Press and several S.C. TV stations.

Deputies accuse Kallenbach of pulling the gun from the console of her car after she and the other driver parked in grass and argued Tuesday morning.

No shots were fired. Deputies said Kallenbach told them she didn’t point the gun and sometimes has a bad temper, media outlets reported, citing a police incident report. She was released on a $5,000 personal recognizance bail, according to FOX Carolina.

Kallenbach was placed on a trespass notice for her child’s school and all other Anderson County schools, NBC Greenville affiliate WYFF reported.
