COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - A woman was arrested for pointing a plastic gun at people while riding a tricycle and then stealing a package from a postal truck. 

Deputies were called to Triangle Bay Dr. and Collier Blvd. Saturday night because of a call that a woman was pointing a gun at people.

Deputies found Leida Crisostomo riding a tricycle and holding a black and silver handgun. Deputies drove beside her and told her to drop the gun. She did. Then she rolled into the grass and put her hands behind her back, deputies said. 

Once handcuffed, law enforcement said Crisostomo told them she was "God" and that voices in her head were telling her to do things. 

Law enforcement discovered that her gun was plastic. 

One victim told deputies that Crisostomo pointed the gun at a mail carrier and force the man out of the truck. The postal worker walked to the back of the truck and handed her a package. Then Crisostomo got back on her back and rode down the sidewalk. 

The package was returned to the postal worker. 

Crisostomo was arrested for armed robbery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

I think this woman needs treatment rather than incarceration. She sounds like she's a few eggs short of a carton.

Just when you think you've seen it all. A grown woman, riding a tricycle, holding a plastic knife, and a gun. 🙃 She's lucky to be alive, but clearly needs help.
