New Caney woman accused of threatening women in D.C. day before Capitol riots

NEW CANEY, Texas (KTRK) -- A woman from New Caney has been charged after allegedly threatening two women just one day before the deadly U.S. Capitol riots.

Records state that on Jan. 5, 42-year-old Alysia Hargrave threatened two women by showing her Taser while D.C. Police were trying to break up two opposing groups who were yelling at each other. As police tried to separate the groups, officers reported to hear a "distinct sound of a Taser 'crackling'" and saw Hargrave with a pink Taser in her hand.

Another one of the victims told police there was a large argument between the groups in the middle of Black Lives Matter Plaza and then the scuffle happened.

According to reports, police determined Hargrave was not using the Taser to defend herself, but rather as a weapon or tool of intimidation.

Hargrave was charged with two counts of assault for the incident.
