..After a former employees threatens to shoot the place up:

Cristina Victoria Vazquez, 54, who lives in the 400 block of South Cliffdale Drive, is charged with two counts of communicating threats, court records show.

A Winston-Salem police officer accused Vazquez of threatening two school employees over the telephone by telling them that she was going to shoot people at the school administrative office’s front desk. According to court documents, she also told another school employee to warn a security officer to wear a bulletproof vest and said she was coming there to shoot people, an arrest warrant says.

Court papers say Vasquez exhibited bizarre behavior as she was being booked. Vasquez maintains –you guessed it –it was all just a joke. Vasquez —a Democrat— has unsuccessfully run twice for the N.C. House.
