KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Maryville Police said a couple's argument became potentially deadly when a woman fired two rounds into the ground near an area where children were getting on a bus for school.

Tammye Gayle Holland faces charges of reckless endangerment and possession of a firearm while intoxicated after a Tuesday incident.

Officers came to Holland's home just before 8 a.m. Tuesday morning at 910 Windridge Drive after a shooting call came in from neighbors.

Law enforcement found Holland and her significant other on their back porch. They found two casings from a .40 caliber Glock near the area, presumably from when Holland shot two rounds into the ground.

Chief Tony Crisp said Holland is facing reckless endangerment charges because she fired the shots during the time of day when children are waiting for the bus to school.
