Woman Pulled Gun on Man During Dispute in Vehicle

A Mississippi woman sitting with a man in a vehicle parked outside of a business was arrested after allegedly pulling a gun on him during a domestic dispute.

Late in the afternoon on May 3, a man and woman were sitting in a car parked outside a business in Lafayette County. Their encounter was reportedly less than pleasant, and the woman allegedly pulled out a gun and pointed it at the man. He was able to get out of the car, and he ran inside the business where he could take cover while notifying the authorities.

The man told the workers what was allegedly happening, and they allowed him to wait inside until the police arrived. Shortly after, officers from the Oxford Police Department headed to the address, and when they got there, they saw a woman sitting in a vehicle as the caller described.

The officer parked behind the vehicle so it could not be driven away, and the woman got out of the car. Since the caller reported a firearm was involved, the police wanted to check the woman for weapons. After they began, she was reportedly able to get away from them. When one of the officers tried to grab her, the woman, who they believed was under the influence, allegedly fought against them until they thought it was necessary to take her to the ground.

When the vehicle was searched, the police reported that a firearm was found.

The woman was taken into custody and booked into the Lafayette County Detention Center. She is facing preliminary charges of domestic violence – aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct, and was held in lieu of a $100,000 bond.
