A theater employee called police after moviegoers notified them about the woman, Cobb police spokesman Sgt. Wayne Delk told AJC.com Wednesday morning.
As an officer tried to zip her purse, Gibson told the official, “I will (expletive) kill you,” according to the warrant.
But she was not arrested at the scene. Delk said she was instead taken to the hospital for treatment. “She was that drunk,” Delk said.
Once at the hospital, police sought a warrant for her arrest because “she wasn’t a threat at that point any longer,” he said.
An officer called one of Gibson’s friends to pick up the child from the theater, Delk said.
On Thursday, Gibson was released from the hospital and was booked into the Cobb County Jail. She bonded out for $1,000, according to jail records.
