SPARTANBURG Co., S.C. (WSPA) – A Spartanburg woman was arrested Tuesday after allegedly pointing a gun at a man in his yard while demanding money.

According to the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office, Vateechia Charmaine Mills, 25, has been charged with one count of domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.

The report from the sheriff’s office says that a deputy was called to a home in the 700 block of Booker Boulevard for a domestic disturbance on July 18 around 6:35 p.m.

The victim told a deputy that his ex-girlfriend, Mills, had pulled in front of his home as he was preparing to leave for work. Mills then reportedly approached the male asking for money that she claimed he owed her.

The report states that when the man refused the demand for money Mills pulled out a black handgun and pointed it at his head, stating that she would shoot him. Other witnesses gave similar accounts of the altercation to deputies.

Mills left the scene before law enforcement arrived. The responding deputy called Mills, who initially responded by asking where her money was. Mills then said that she did not have a gun or pull a gun on the male victim and would be willing to give her statement on what happened.

There were no reported injuries in the case.

Mills is currently in the Spartanburg County jail under a $5,000 bond.
