49 year old Lakeshia Bean is waking up in jail today, after she got a little crazy last night at the Jet’s Pizza in East Nashville with a foot long butcher knife.
Monday night at 7:15 PM, MNPD responded to the Jet’s Pizza in East Nashville. Lakeshia Bean, 49, had approached a customer in the parking lot, panhandling. She got in her face and demanded money. The customer quickly went into the restaurant to place her order and remove herself from the situation.
While placing her order, Lakeshia Bean came inside and pulled out a 10-12″ butcher knife and began waving it in the air and stated “I’m going to cut you, white bitch”. She continued with “I’m going to cut your eyes and slit your throat, then kill you”.
An employee, Jujuan Williams, jumped over the counter and got between the customer and Lakeshia Bean, and made her leave the store. Bean then walked toward the Kroger, where she was located inside approaching more customers for money, still armed with the butcher knife on her person.
Bean is charged with aggressive panhandling, trespass, & aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She is currently held on a $10,500 bond.
