A family found themselves to be victims of what appears to be a random act of violence. It all started Sunday while they were in their car waiting at a red light on the exit ramp off I-40 and Demonbreun.
According to court records, Tamra Nelson may have been looking for trouble. She was reportedly shouting racial slurs at the family while standing on the corner of the intersection. Nelson then picked up a rock and threw it at the car. It made a dent in the back passenger side where the family's four year old daughter was sitting inside.
Nelson ran from the scene then turned back around to pick up something she dropped. By this time, the couple had gotten out of the car to inspect the damage. Nelson confronted the couple again and pulled out a pair of scissors and started threatening the man and his wife.
Police were able to arrest Nelson before anyone got hurt. Nelson is charged with aggravated assault and vandalism and being held on a $60,000 bond.

Tishomingo County voters OK beer, alcohol sales
May 22, 2013 23:38 GMT
IUKA, Miss. (AP) -- Tishomingo County is the latest Mississippi jurisdiction to legalize alcohol sales.
Voters approved the sale of liquor, wine and beer Tuesday, reports the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/13JCcix).
It wasn't clear referendums would pass until affidavit ballots were counted Wednesday.
With more than half Tishomingo County's voters casting ballots, legalizing alcohol passed by 42 votes, while legalizing beer and light wine passed by 73. The county borders Alabama and Tennessee.
Lawmakers legalized liquor at a proposed resort at the county's Bay Springs Lake in 2010, but it wasn't built.
Greene County voters legalized beer sales last year, while Corinth, New Albany and Senatobia have legalized alcohol sales under a 2012 law that allows cities to hold votes.
Mississippi has 13 remaining counties that allow no beer or alcohol sales.
