(Newser) – Not a recommended Black Friday shopping strategy: cutting to the front of the line of patiently waiting shoppers ... then threatening to shoot them after they complain. A 21-year-old Wisconsin woman was arrested last night after making just such threats. The incident happened outside a Toys 'R' Us store in Madison that opened at 10pm last night. Police reported that several hundred shoppers were in line around that time when the woman tried to jump to the front.

A gun was not found, but the woman was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, reports the Wisconsin State Journal. "She's now spending her shopping money to post bond," said a Madison police sergeant.
