A woman was arrested Thursday for trespassing and disorderly conduct after she was seen holding a knife at an Oklahoma City children's water park.

Parents concerned about the safety of children called police to McKinley Park at 1630 N.W. 13th Street when they saw the suspicious woman.

When officers arrived, they observed Sabrina Marie Maynahonah standing under a water park waterfall with her jacket on. Police say the woman began smiling at officers.

After police made contact with Maynahonah, she threw her knife on the ground, according to officers. Police say Maynahonah was in close proximity to children and officers when she disobeyed an order to move away from the knife.

Eventually, officers say they were forced to use a taser gun on the woman out of safety concerns. Police then took her into custody.
