At first I thought it was crazy that a woman ran over a man with her car for merely walking down the street with a gun, but as if often the case, the devil is in the details:
The driver reportedly saw White walking down Main Street in Aliquippa carrying the pellet gun around 9 p.m. Thursday and called 911. She followed him for a couple blocks and when she noticed he was was walking in the direction of two teenagers, she rolled down her window and asked him to leave the kids alone.
‘She thought he was going to do something to them, so she yelled out of her car window, “Hey, they’re just kids, leave them alone,”‘ Sgt. Steven Roberts of the Aliquippa Police Department told KDKA.
‘He turned and pointed [the pellet gun] at her, and she thought it was a real weapon and that she was about to be shot or that the kids were in danger, so she gunned her car and struck him,’ he said.
Beaver County District Attorney Anthony Berosh said the woman won’t be charged with any crimes.
‘She had no duty to retreat,’ Berosh said. ‘You don’t have to wait to find out whether or not this is a real gun or not, and she was acting not only out of her own defense, but the defense of those two children.’
