A Cumberland County woman was charged over the weekend for allegedly firing a BB gun at another vehicle on I-40 in Putnam County. The Herald-Citizen reports that a family was traveling west on the interstate through Cookeville on Saturday when a maroon Altima pulled up beside them and the driver stuck the barrel of a gun out of her window and fired a ball bearing into the passenger window. The BB did not penetrate the glass and no one was injured. The victims slowed down to let the Altima get ahead of them so they could get the tag number along with a description of the car and then alerted the authorities. Cookeville police met the family at the Clarion Inn where they also discovered the vehicle and the driver who was identified as 31-year-old Heather Beck of Crossville. According to the Herald-Citizen, Beck was charged with vandalism and aggravated assault. Her bond was set at $3,250 and she is scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on July 24.
