Dalisia Traella Barnes' legal problems just got a lot more complicated than her facial aesthetics.

The 28-year-old mother was arrested yesterday when police found a gun in her car after she threatened to harm others at Myrtle Grove Elementary School in Miami Gardens.

Details are still unclear, but according to NBC Miami, Barnes informed the Department of Children and Families that she intended to go to the school to harm herself and others. Police found her there and asked to search her car. Barnes consented and police found a gun in her glove compartment. No word on whether the weapon was loaded.

The incident happened on Wednesday afternoon.

Barnes was booked later that night on charges of bringing a firearm to a school. She was released this morning into the care of doctors at Fort Lauderdale Hospital.

Barnes had previously been arrested in 2012 in Broward County on charges of grand theft.
