A lunch lady was charged Monday after allegedly threatening to shoot up the middle school where she worked as head cook because a co-worker was over-cooking her cookies.
Wendy Ferris, 46, was charged with threatening to commit a crime after the assistant superintendent of King Phillip Schools contacted police to say Ferris had become upset about a co-worker re-baking cookies that she had made. Ferris denies making the alleged threats, according to her attorney.
According to a police report, Ferris allegedly told the cafeteria manager at the school, "I'm thinking about going out to buy an AK-47 and shooting this (expletive) school up!" (MyFoxBoston.com)
Court records indicate that Ferris is also accused of making other threatening statements involving guns and coworkers. (TheSunChronicle.com)
