Tabitha Smith

SOUTH FORSYTH — A teenager suspected of firing a gun Saturday afternoon during a fight at a south Forsyth gas station was arrested Tuesday in neighboring Fulton County.

Forsyth County Sheriff’s deputies obtained warrants for Tabitha Abigayle Smith, 18, of Roswell in connection with an incident that occurred Jan. 23 at the Shell gas station on McFarland Parkway just off Exit 12 of Ga. 400.

According to Cpl. Robin Regan, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, Smith has been charged in Forsyth with aggravated assault and reckless conduct.

The fight happened about 5 p.m. At the time, witnesses told deputies they heard a gunshot, though no one was injured.

Smith had supposedly come to the business to fight a 19-year-old from Roswell. Two other people, one from Roswell and the other from Alpharetta, were thought to have witnessed the incident.

Smith reportedly left the scene before deputies got there.

Regan said she is suspected of stealing the S&W Shield 9mm handgun she used in the incident from her parents’ home in Fulton County. The weapon was taken from her Jan. 23 before she fled the fight.

The theft had been reported at 2:30 p.m. that day.

Smith was released from the Fulton County Jail on Wednesday night after posting a $7,500 bond on a charge of theft by taking, according to jail records.

According to Forsyth Sheriff’s Deputy Epifanio Rodriguez, Smith was then taken to the Forsyth County Jail, where bond has been set at $11,715.
