a middle aged woman pulled a gun on a heel in TYOOL 2016

Adam Cook, reporter | Updated 19 minutes ago

A LaFayette woman was arrested on aggravated assault charges after she allegedly pulled a gun on a popular pro wrestler during a match in Ringgold.

The incident has prompted the promoters to consider installing metal detectors at matches.

According to the Catoosa County Sheriff’s Department:

Patricia Anne Crowe, 50, of 604 Chestnut Street, was arrested Saturday, June 4, on charges of aggravated assault and reckless conduct.

She was released from jail Monday evening, June 6, on a $4,000 bond.

The incident occurred around 11 p.m. at the American Wrestling Federation (AWF) arena at 4193 U.S. 41 in Ringgold.

The promotion was putting on its monthly show, when Crowe, a spectator at the event, threatened and attacked long-time wrestler Paul Lee.

Deputies arrived on scene after Crowe allegedly jumped into the ring during the show and pulled a handgun on Lee.

According to Lee and several witnesses, Lee was participating in a match with “Iron Mann,” at which time he tied him up and was hitting him with a chair, reports show.

“I had him tied up and was beating on him, and this lady jumps up with a knife, cuts him loose, and then pulled a loaded gun on me,” Lee said. “She had that thing loaded with one in the chamber and the safety off. All it would have taken was for her to get shaky with that thing and it could have fired.”

Crowe also pointed the gun at the show’s commissioner “Robbie Rude,” reports show.

Lee says the woman has been to shows before and should have known that the incident going on with the other wrestler was part of the show.

“She’s been to several shows over the years off and on, but she was acting like a nut Saturday night,” Lee said.

Lee, whose character is a “heel” or “bad guy,” often banters back and forth with spectators as part of the show, but it rarely turns physical.

“We’ve done fraternity shows at colleges and stuff before where drunk college kids will try to run into the ring or something, but nothing like this,” Lee said. “In about 1992, at another location, we were doing a show and I got stabbed by about a six-inch blade by a fan. Fans usually don’t get involved though, they usually just watch.”

According to police Cpl. Chris Faulk, Crowe admitted she pulled the gun on Lee because of the banter the two had engaged in.

“Ms. Crowe did indeed pull the gun on Mr. Lee because of the way he’d talked to her,” Faulk said. “She said, ‘he was talking mean to me, and I got mad. I guess I just let my temper get the best of me and I pulled my pistol on him’.”

Lee says he told Crowe “to sit her toothless self back down,” and that she then approached the ring.

Lee added that he’s not thrilled with Crowe being released so soon.

“The sheriff’s office called me to let me know they let her out Monday on a $4,000 bond,” Lee said. “I think it should have been a higher bond than that. She pulled a gun on me in front of kids and everything….it was just crazy.”

Approximately 160 people were in attendance during the incident, which has prompted Lee and the AWF to revaluate their security measures at the arena.

“We’re going to be installing metal detectors at the entrances,” Lee said. “We’ve already got ‘em picked up and will have them installed before the next show. The way the world is today, things happen at movie theatres and malls….you have to take extreme measures to protect fans. We’ll have the metal detectors right at the doors when you come in.”

Dude should feel lucky that a reporter called some indie schmoe working in front of 160 popular.

We're almost certainly not getting a significant lucha contingent like last year but Rey Horus would be a great addition.

If they're not getting any guys from AAA proper this year since the connection through Konnan isn't there anymore, they should pick up another CMLL guy. If Dragon Lee's too injured to do it get his older bro Rush, his schtick could get way over there.

It's very bizarre to read an English language article referring to Brian Cage as a luchador.

Adam Cole now has a five star match while Roman Reigns does not.

Could have a real fun time with that fact on Twitter with a few people if I decided I ever wanted to interact with them at all.

He still has a LONG way to go before he catches up to the Ace of the Universe tho

Can he take over the El Generico gimmick and fool the Canadian authorities?

It's the American authorities. It's nto like he's not allowed to leave the country, the US doesn't want him in. Canada's actually a lot easier on indie wrestlers coming in than the US is due to some sort of visa exception for small gigs.

is the NWA title still a bought title or have they stopped doing that?

the guy using the Sheikh gimmick who bought the title was pre Tharpe and I don't think that's happened since then. At the very least I think it's safe to say Tenzan and Kojima didn't.

Probably Flo Sports not WWE. We know Flo has been going after tape libraries and WWE has only been testing the waters recently no way they already have details worked out for actual news to drop.

Is Scott Levesque a guy doing a Triple H's cousin gimmick or is that his shoot name? In NE that's hardly impossible I know.

guerrillas of destiny vs KES was a ridiculous brawl. just an intense back and forth rear end kicking for about 10 minutes. 4 star match. .

that's good to hear since I'm sure we'll be getting that matchup in NJPW later this year

Speaking of which, it must be pretty cool for Super Dragon and Excalibur to see both of their promotion's championships on NJPW broadcasts. Too bad it couldn't have been the nicer looking belt making the Tokyo Dome.

what blew my mind more than ZSJ wearing the belt was the fact the ring announcer mentioning it and the evolve belt along with the British title on this morning's show

he's complaining about his tag team partner to a woman he used to sleep with that he tells everyone is insane and untrustworthy

he's very bad at twitter!!!

before deactivating yet again he claimed that he was playing master puppetmaster because he knew she'd leak the info and then proving his point!

eagerly waiting to see how he's gonna further bury himself online tomorrow

For the uninitiated, what does any of this mean?

it's a categorization of notable US and Canadian indie feds ranging from S Tier (highest) to Honorable Mention (lowest). ROH is listed as Graduated because he correctly noted that they're not really an indie anymore due to size, corporate ownership, and a roster that's mainly either exclusive or shared with NJPW.

it's cool that we're at the point some indies would rather promote mvp as an ex new japan guy than an ex wwe guy. the best thing he ever did there was that youtube video from the 2012 g1 finals tho.

Has anyone signed up for BJW Core since it came back? I'm trying to sign up on the new website and it's asking me for my date of birth, not matter what I do it's not accepting my DOB. Any advice or help there?

never used that one but you may be inputting it in the wrong order. year/month/day seems most predominant in japanese.
