A Florida woman was arrested this week after she allegedly barged into a gas station while naked and then threatened to kill staff with an apple peeler, police said.
Celia Barrett, 35, was arrested on Sunday after she allegedly entered the RaceTrac at 2551 54th Ave. in St. Petersburg and began swinging around a peeler knife, which is often used to peel fruits and vegetables, and began threading staff, FOX 13 Tampa Bay reported.

According to the arrest affidavit, Barrett had a previous run-in at the same gas station back in November, and she told police that she visited the facility on Sunday evening after taking six shots of liquor.
Barrett walked in waving a “sharp-edged peeler-corer,” accosted staff and threatened to use the kitchen tool against them, police said. During the incident, she mentioned her previous incident and began yelling obscenities, according to FOX 13 Tampa Bay.
