A Thomasville woman is under arrest after a bizarre incident in a Davidson County courtroom.

Gakeshia Williams is accused of attacking another woman with a handful of bamboo skewers. Police say she wrapped ten sharpened skewers with tape and took them to the courthouse with the intent to use them as a weapon.

"I just walked past her...and then that's when she jumped me from behind." victim Patricia Lucas explained. "She was swinging at me. I basically thought she just wanted to fight. I didn't know she had a weapon."

Lucas suffered scratches from the attack. She and Williams have a history of disputes.
