The grandmother said that Gates threw a fit and became disrespectful toward others in the house.
Gates first threw a pack of cigarettes at her 73-year-old great-grandmother, striking her in the eye.
Then she grabbed a knife and started waving it at her grandfather, deputies say.
Grandpa ran away and Gates reportedly chased him with the knife in her hand.
She “threatened to stab him in the face and began poking the knife toward his face, nearly cutting him,” the news report states.
Gates was arrested and charged with two felonies: aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated battery on a victim over the age of 65.
She lives with grandparents.
