A Taylorsville woman has been charged with assault and resisting officers after she was accused of firing a gun at utility workers, the Alexander County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Susan Lynn Moose, 61, was charged with misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest.

She received a $10,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 16.

Around 1:30 p.m. Sunday, deputies received a call about shots being fired at workers on Fairgrounds Road in Taylorsville, authorities said. Sheriff Chris Bowman said deputies spoke with utility workers who stated they were cursed at by a woman who then fired two shots at the workers. Bowman added the employees were working on a cellphone tower at the time and were approximately 150 feet in the air.

Bowman said Moose barricaded herself inside her home when officers arrived and wouldn’t respond to their commands.

She was subsequently removed from the residence, arrested and taken to the Alexander County Law Enforcement Center.
