Grandmother faces felony kidnapping charge

The Wilson Post

A Lebanon woman was charged with two felonies after allegedly kidnapping her 8-month-old granddaughter on Sunday, but peacefully surrendered the child after negotiations with the Lebanon Police Department.

Around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 22, officers responded to a domestic situation as 213 Thomas Terrace, discovering the suspect, Toni Shaw, 37, was forcefully trying to prevent her daughter, Janie Crute, from leaving the home with Crutes 8-month-old daughter.

Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen said Shaw pulled the child from Crute and locked herself inside the home. Shaw also allegedly told officers that she had a gun inside the home.

Shaw apparently didnt want the child to leave with her mom, but she didnt have a court order, Bowen said, indicating Crute has proper custody of the child.

Referring to the suspect reportedly telling officers she had a gun inside the home, Bowen said their first priority was the childs safety and said second was making sure the situation resolved without injuries.

An Old Hickory woman was arrested in Mt. Juliet Saturday after she allegedly pulled a gun on a man and posed as an off-duty police officer at Charlie Daniels Park.

Around 9:30 p.m., on Saturday, July 21, MJPD received a call in reference to a female pointing a gun at a juvenile male in the parking lot of the city park. A witness, who called the police, told dispatchers that the female suspect said she was an off-duty police officer.

Officers arrived at the scene and the suspect was identified as Holly Hood, 35, of Old Hickory. Investigation revealed that Hood was not an off-duty police officer.

According to the male juvenile victim, he was driving his car through the parking lot when Hood reportedly yelled for him to stop. After stopping his vehicle, the victim said Hood told him she was an off-duty police officer. Hood reportedly ordered the male to step out of the vehicle and place his hands on top of the car.
