Sheriff’s deputies charged a Florida woman with burglary after she allegedly threatened a deputy and locked herself inside the Wat Amphawan of America Buddhist Temple Wednesday (02/09/22) night on Barfield-Crescent Road.

Deputy Joseph Brady charged 46-year-old Kayla Marie Meyers-Graves of Clewiston, Fla., with burglary, aggravated assault, evading arrest and simple possession of marijuana.

Brady responded to the temple for a suspicious vehicle parked there. Brady located Meyers-Graves who refused to exit the vehicle. She pointed what he believed to be a weapon at him, then entered the temple and locked the door.

Lt. Derek Oeser talked with the woman until other deputies entered the temple and took her into custody.

The incident, which started around 9 o'clock on Wednesday night, ended with her being booked into the county jail at 3:16 Thursday morning. Meyers-Graves remains behind bars at this time.  She is being held on $13,000 bond at Rutherford County Adult Detention Center.
