Police: Inmate threatens officers after unsatisfactory brownie

After she didn’t like her brownie, a Sanford, Florida, woman threatened officers with a dust mop handle.

At about 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Alltawanna Gilchrist, 19, received the chocolate pastry during lunch at the Alachua County Jail, according to a police report.

However, Gilchrist was unhappy with the brownie, so a detention officer took her lunch tray and walked to get her a new one, according to the report. 

When the officer left, Gilchrist stood on a table in the jail’s dayroom and grabbed a dust mop handle that had metal on the end, according to the report.

Gilchrist then swung the handle in the air and yelled threats at officers, according to the report.

As one officer walked back into the room, Gilchrist said, “Bring your a** in here, and I will have something for you,” according to the report.

Deputies with the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office arrested Gilchrist on two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.

Gilchrist has an open case from when police said she threw an unknown liquid on a corrections officer at UF Health Shands Hospital in October, according to Alachua County court records.

She remains in jail, as of press time, in lieu of a $20,000 bond.
