A Tulsa woman was arrested after police say she chased a man around with a socket wrench outside the Jenks Fire Station Saturday night.

Jenks Police arrested Teresa Denice Christian, 50, for public intoxication and domestic assault and battery with a deadly weapon.

Police say firefighters called them to the Jenks Fire Station at 1115 West 121st Street to report a domestic dispute. The firefighters said a pickup truck pulled into their parking lot at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, and a woman got out and got a wrench from a tool box in the back.

A man got out of the driver's side, and the woman started chasing him, holding the socket wrench and yelling, according to an arrest report.

"The Jenks Firemen watched this in the safety of their Fire Station until the Jenks Police Department arrived and made the scene safe," the arresting officer said in his report.

The man ran up to the fire station door trying unsuccessfully to get inside, the officer said, but then ran back to his pickup as Christian got closer to him with the wrench.

Jenks police officers arrested her and said she showed signs of being intoxicated. She had slurred speech, blood shot eyes and kept forgetting what she was saying, the arrest report states.

The man told officers they went to the Wok Wok Chinese Restaurant in Tulsa and got into a fight on the way home. He said Christian grabbed the steering wheel and tried to knock the car out of gear.

"He felt like they needed some intervention so he drove to the only place where he knew security would be at, the Jenks Fire Station," the officer said.
