WEST ASHLEY, S.C. (WCIV) -- A woman was arrested Monday evening after Charleston police officers say she swung a knife at two employees of a mental health facility where she was a patient.

After the incident, Johnson ran.

When police caught up with her, the report states, they handcuffed her and put her in the back of a patrol car. She made several statements, the report states, including: "I am the princess... I am the realtor, I am the wife of the president, and they are not giving me AIDS"

She also told officers that she was a queen and owned everything. Officers noted in the report that Johnson had a history of mental disease and had been dropped off at the facility for treatment.

She is being held at the Al Cannon Detention Center.
