A woman accused of stealing a car over the weekend threw a fit when she was arrested hours later, Columbus police said.

Terry Redwine, 35, is charged with theft by taking a motor vehicle, disorderly conduct and obstruction of an officer, reports state.

Police say Redwine stole a $12,000 car about 4:50 p.m. Saturday, and that the car’s owner told police Redwine was the suspect.

Less than three hours later, police responded to 1700 Fountain Court about a dispute involving a knife, reports state. Officers saw Redwine and the stolen car at the scene, and they then arrested her.
