A woman has been arrested after allegedly pulling a knife on a family during a road rage incident.

According to an affidavit from Metro Nashville Police, Alexis Howard approached a mother and her children after they were involved in a crash on 16th Avenue at Buchanan Street.

The victim told police that Howard got out of her car with a knife and told her she’d better have insurance.

With her children in the car, the victim made a frantic call to 911 and police took over the situation.

Officers arrived on the scene and arrested her for aggravated assault. They said she was also driving on a suspended license.
