Budding rocket scientist in the making Cameron White found out the hard way some people aren’t intimidated when you point a gun at them – especially when they have a 4,000 pound weapon under their foot in the form of a gas pedal.
(Daily Mail) – A Pennsylvania woman plowed into a man with her car because she thought he was a threat when saw him walking in the direction of two teenagers and carrying what appeared to be a sawed-off shotgun.
…The suspect, 21-year-old Cameron White, was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, including a torn-off ear that had to be sewed back on.
Authorities believe White was planning to use the pellet gun to rob a nearby convenience store, as he was dressed in all black and had a stocking with him. He is now in jail on a $30,000 bond.
Ouch! That’s probably quite a scar he’s going to have on his ear… but he’ll have plenty of time to come up with a good “tale” of how it occurred that surely won’t include a good Samaritan running his butt over for being a little hoodlum.
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.
Good job, woman. We would say “good shoot”, but she ran him over.
Good runover, perhaps?
Oh yeah, here’s a picture of the little fecal headed rocket scientist.
