The incident took place Sept. 19 on a downtown Memphis street. Police say they saw Welch point a Glock 9-mm gun out the passenger-side window and fire two shots out of a Hyundai Elantra while driving south on Danny Thomas Boulevard around 3 a.m., according to WREG.

According to police, when they arrested Welch she was "halfway undressed" and "smiling and laughing the entire time." Officers also reported finding a gun and a green leafy substane that appeared to be marijuana, WREG reported.
