Court documents say on March 31, 2017, police were sent to Bridgewater Court to investigate a report of a person with a gun.

When police arrived, the owner of the car stated that after an altercation with 55-year-old Sherry Webb, Webb threatened her and shot one of the tires on her car.

When questioned, Webb first told police that she was asleep at the time of the incident and then changed her story saying that she was on the porch at the time of the gunshot and then returned inside.

After a search of the apartment, police turned up paperwork for a handgun as well as packaged marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
A spent shell casing was also found next to the car tire which was flat and had a visible circular hole in it.

Webb was arrested and charged with intimidation, criminal recklessness, criminal mischief and possession of marijuana.

Webb's sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 2.
