MIDLAND, Texas (AP) -

A Dallas-area woman has been arrested in a cooked corn dog dispute at a West Texas business.

Midland County jail records show 45-year-old Charmelle Henry of Carrollton was being held Thursday on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Bond was set at $100,000 for Henry, who was arrested Saturday by Midland police after allegedly flashing a knife and threatening store workers.

Investigators say Henry paid 75 cents for a corn dog but became upset when she was handed a microwaved version. The suspect allegedly demanded a second corn dog - uncooked -and threatened the lives of store workers as they tried to serve her.

Online jail records did not list an attorney for Henry.
