East Nashville resident Trena Rice, of Petway Ave, went to Sonic Friday night, and was unhappy with how her hamburger was prepared. According to an arrest affidavit, Rice confronted Sonic employees about her order, and an argument ensued. Rice retrieved a box cutter from her vehicle, and confronted a Sonic employee, waving the box cutter at him in a threatening manner. The employee went back inside to avoid being cut, while Rice remained outside screaming and making threats towards the employees. She then threw the box cutter at the building, just before police arrived on scene. Upon being interviewed, Rice admitted to threatening the victim with the weapon.
Rice was charged with Agg Assault w/Deadly Weapon, and booked into the Davidson County Sheriff’s Dept just after 7:30PM and bonded out 4 hours later on a $2,500 bond via On Time Bail Bonds.
Rice has an extensive criminal history with 46 previous charges in Nashville.
This is what we call a “let me speak to your manager” haircut, if we’ve ever seen one:
On 10/20/2017, officers responded to a report of a disturbance at the Sonic at 444 Murfreesboro Pike. The defendant was unhappy with how her hamburger was prepared and returned to the restaurant where she confronted the employees. An argument began during which the defendant returned to her vehicle and retrieved a box cutter. She then went back toward the victim and began waving the box cutter at him in a threatening manner. The victim went back inside to avoid being cut, and the defendant remained outside screaming and making more threats. She finally threw the box cutter at the building right before officers arrived on scene. The defendant admitted that she retrieved the box cutter and threatened the victim with it, and officers were able to locate it at the scene.
Rice is scheduled to appear in court on 11/07.
