A Canadian woman has been charged with a number of violations following a rather colourful display at a public mall. This is not the first time the woman has been arrested. In fact, while she was acting out she was sporting an ankle monitor due to a recent house arrest. The story is definitely shocking, but also something you wish you could have seen at the same time. 

On January 21, 2019, police in Abbotsford, British Columbia were called to investigate a woman that was uttering threats. Danielle Rigdon, a female in her early 40s, was arrested and charged with a number of violations including pointing a firearm, assault with a weapon, and uttering threats. After the arrest, police searched the residence and seized a loaded firearm and ammunition. 

Rigdon appeared in court and was later released on house arrest. She left the courtroom with an electric monitoring bracelet mean to keep her at home. On March 18, 2019, Ridgon was supposed to be at home on house arrest but instead, she decided to go to the mall. 

Of course, due to her ankle monitor, police tracked her down pretty fast. Abbotsford police located Rigdon at the Sevenoaks Shopping Centre where she was shopping with a friend. Things were fine at first and police arrested her without incident.
