LAKELAND, Tenn. — A Lakeland mother was taken into custody after deputies said she pulled a gun on her husband during an argument over house cleaning.

The alleged incident happened Tuesday evening in the 5300 block of Conifer View Lane.

The suspect's husband told responding deputies that his kids he shares with Carol Foshee were coming into town for fall break and they got into an argument regarding cleaning the house.

At some point, Foshee allegedly threw a drink can at her husband which was thrown right back at her, possibly hitting her in the head. That's when deputies said she went to the dresser and grabbed the family's gun. Her husband ran for the door and had just closed it when a shot was reportedly fired.

Foshee said the shooting was an accident and that after the incident she put the weapon in the master bedroom. However, the victim said she followed him into the garage with the gun still in her possession.

The neighbor we talked to didn't want to show her face, but says fights on Conifer View Lane are't normal.

"I've lived here a year-and-a-half and it's quiet. That is why I moved here."

Foshee was charged with aggravated assault.
