A Spartanburg woman was arrested after police said she pulled a gun from her car and pointed it two other women after a fight broke out in a city park.

Spartanburg Police said several officers were called to Stewart Park on Highland Avenue just before 1 p.m. Saturday.

Officers said dispatch had they performed a felony take down on two women inside a car, and ordered the women out at gunpoint, according to reports.

Inside the car, officers said they found a 9mm handgun that was reportedly used in the disturbance. Two small children were also in the car, officers said, and were placed in a family member's custody while the investigation took place.

Officers said the suspect, Ashley Robbs, 26, got into a fist fight with several other women at the park, in the presence of several young children. Reports that there were between 20-30 children under age eight at the time of the incident.

A park employee pulled the women away from one another and ordered Robbs and two other women to leave the park, according to officers.

At her car, Robbs pulled out the gun and pointed it at another woman as their quarrel continued, according to reports.

Officers said they received conflicting reports from witnesses as to whether Robbs presented the gun as a threat or in self-defense.

According to witnesses, Robbs stated that she "would shoot anyone who wanted to fight her."

Robbs denied presenting the gun and was extremely uncooperative during the investigation, officers said.

Officers presented their evidence to a judge, who issued an arrest warrant against Robbs.

Robbs was charged with pointing and presenting a firearm in city limits.

Robbs was released from the Spartanburg County Detention Center on her own recognizance Sunday morning, according to jail records
