Police took a woman in custody after she allegedly threatened a driver with a hand grenade during an apparent road rage incident Tuesday afternoon near Central Expressway and LBJ Freeway.
A motorist called Richardson police just before 5 p.m. to report that a driver in another car had displayed what appeared to be a grenade in a threatening manner.
"She pulls out what appears to be a hand grenade, pulls the pin and starts making threatening motions like she is going to throw it at him," said Garland police spokesman Joe Harn.
Richardson police tracked the suspect vehicle to Belt Line and Shiloh roads in Garland, where they found 41-year-old Kimberly Al Homsi coming out of the parking lot of the Brighter Horizons Academy in Garland where she had just picked up her daughter.

Officers took Al Homsi into custody at the scene, but then made a discovery that led them to request a bomb squad.
"As officers approached the car, they saw what appeared to be a couple of hand grenades inside the car," said Richardson Police Sgt. Kevin Perlich.
Harn said the bomb squad determined the devices were actual grenades, but did not contain any explosive material. However, they also found ammunition inside the vehicle.

Muslims in the area are working hard to lead an Islamic way of life within a non-Muslim society.
Sounds like you're off to a heck of a start!
