We get it. Not all folks take delight in the annual takeover of their streets by marauding bands of trick-or-treaters.

But few are as impervious to the Halloween spirit as the Texas woman who this year had a shocking trick up her own sleeve to beat back the hordes of candy seekers.

Monica Ann Bradford, 35, was arrested on Sunday after she allegedly pointed a loaded gun at a 7-year-old trick-or-treater outside her home.

Deputies responded to a residential street in Buda, a suburb of Austin, following reports of a disturbance at around 7:20 p.m, the Hays County Sheriff’s Office said.

A woman later identified as Bradford was seen yelling at a group of children in costumes standing by her residence.

She then allegedly went outside to confront the pint-sized revelers with a loaded gun, which she pointed at a 7-year-old child.

Bradford was arrested and charged with second-degree aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a felony.

She was booked into the Hays County Jail, where she is being held on a $10,000 bond, local station KXAN reported.
