King said the situation escalated from there. After she dumped water on the teens, Henson waited for them outside of the restaurant.

“When they left she confronted them and pulled a knife and said, ‘If you want some of me, come on,’” King said.

King said police posted photos on Facebook to find Henson and the people of Tahlequah came forward with a name.
