St. Petersburg Police said that a box truck, possibly a delivery vehicle was in a parking spot that Manning wanted to use. Manning exited her vehicle, unsheathed a sword, and approached the victim’s box truck while brandishing the sword, described as being approximately two feet in length.

According to the arrest affidavit, Manning raised the sword “in an aggressive manner” close to the victim’s open driver’s side window, leaned in and told the driver “You can get f— up.”

As Florida is a stand your ground state, Ms. Manning may want to consider speaking to the driver to see if they are just delivering items and will be leaving before brandishing a lethal weapon and threatening people. A high percentage of people carry concealed weapons in this state and there’s a good chance of getting shot doing what Ms. Manning did

The affidavit said the suspect did not have any intention of killing the victim, but the man still was afraid of being harmed.

Manning is no stranger to law enforcement. She self identifies as a “thug girl” as evidenced by the tattoo on her upper right arm. Her Pinellas County booking record shows a history of arrests back to 2006 for offenses such as several arrests for driving while hwe license was suspended or revoked, habitual traffic offender, violation of probation, disorderly conduct, and resisting an officer without violence.

Manning was transported to the Pinellas County Jail and booked on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Her bond was set at $5,000 which she posted and has been released at this time.
