This in from
the Orange County, Florida Sheriff's office...
An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her
car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She
shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of
her voice, "I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out
of the car!" The four men didn't wait for a second
invitation. They got out and ran like mad.
The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags
into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat. She was
so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She
tried and tried, and then it dawned on her why. A few minutes
later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther
down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police
The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing.
He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were
reporting a car jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white,
less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a
large handgun. No charges were filed.
