Lawful South Carolina Gun Owner Goes to Jail

The two repo men told deputies they made contact with Smith so she could get her personal items out of the car. They said she became angry, grabbed a bat, chased them into the road and threatened to shoot them. She grabbed the keys out of their tow truck, the report states, and demanded they leave her vehicle alone “or else.”
Smith chased them a second time before she tried to turn on their tow truck and lower her car off a wrecker, but couldn’t, the report states. Smith went into her house and retrieved a revolver, which she pointed at them. She put the gun to one man’s head and told him he had five seconds to lower the car off the wrecker, the report states. The repo men released the car and left.
Deputies were unable to find Smith’s car. She told them she drove it to a “safe location” so that it would not be repossessed. She added that she doesn’t own a gun, but she does own a bat that she keeps in her bedroom.
Deputies arrested Smith, charging her with two counts of third-degree assault and battery. She was released from jail on a personal recognizance bond. Court records show she has no prior criminal history.

  1. Mikeb, calling someone a liar or a coward without evidence is one thing, but calling someone a criminal is an act of libel. If you tolerate it, you are equally liable.

  2. Greg, what the hell's wrong with you? Haven't you seen my several messages lately asking for this to stop? Haven't you seen the comment moderation go back on in the meantime?
