She made the threats to a coworker, who told management that Barnes had been absent for about an hour while working her shift on Oct. 29, and that when Barnes returned she showed signs of being high on marijuana.

In addition to threatening to assault management, Barnes allegedly told the coworker she woudl blow up the building, and would harm anyone who said anything that got her in trouble.
