On November 8, 2002 the Thibodaux Police received a call from the Church's Fried Chicken located at 518 St. Mary Street in reference to a disturbance involving a customer. The customer was armed with a hand gun.

Upon arrival at the restaurant the officers were advised that the customer had left the restaurant prior to their arrival.

According to the manager, Tashiba Johnson (06-07-80) a customer had come into the restaurant and placed an order. Ms. Johnson advised that the customer became irate for an unknown reason and began a verbal confrontation with Ms. Johnson. Johnson advised that the customer then left the restaurant.

Ms Johnson advised that later on during the night the same customer returned to the restaurant and began to make threats towards Ms Johnson. Ms Johnson advised that she and several other employees retreated towards the rear of the restaurant to escape from the irate customer. Ms Johnson advised that when she reached the rear office of the restaurant she could observe the customer through the security camera located in the lobby area. Ms Johnson advised that she then saw the customer produce a handgun and begin to walk towards the rear of the restaurant towards Ms Johnson and the others employees. The employees attempted to stop the customer by spraying her with a water hose, but the customer continued towards Ms Johnson and the others. Ms Johnson advised that the customer placed the gun against her back and her side and said, "B***h you gonna get it." Johnson advised that an unknown black male subject appeared from the front of the store and grabbed the customer and pulled her away from Ms Johnson and the others. The female customer and the male subject then left the store in a white vehicle

Employees of the restaurant were able to identify the customer later as Carrie Butler, 44 years old, of 518 Fredrick Drive, Thibodaux, LA. A warrant was issued for the arrest of Butler on one count of Aggravated Assault. On Tuesday, November 12, 2002, Ms Butler turned herself in to detectives of the Thibodaux Police Department. Butler was released after posting a $1,500.00 bond.
