Authorities in Rockdale County arrested a woman who they say threatened a juvenile court judge in front of three sheriff's deputies.

A deputy says during the incident the woman, Olukemi Olunloyo, also said Fulton County Superior Court Judge Rowland Barnes, who was killed in the Atlanta courthouse shootings earlier this month, "got what he deserved."

Deputies were called to her home Wednesday afternoon to settle a domestic dispute between her and her 18-year-old son.

Authorities say the woman, who is a licensed pharmacist, make the threats after deputies had calmed her son and started to leave the house. A sheriff's department report indicates she claimed to have the juvenile court judge's pharmacy records. It says the woman claimed she would "mess her up" if the judge ruled against her younger son during an upcoming hearing.

The woman is charged with intimidation of a court officer.
