Woman takes photo of driver who threatened her with gun


MOBILE, Ala. (KXAN) — A woman managed to get a photograph of a couple who threatened her with a gun while they were driving in Mobile, Ala. 

Tyra Jones tells WPMI she was stopped at a traffic light on Saturday afternoon when another driver pulled up next to her. 

“He pulled right here on to this grass and next thing I know his girlfriend was calling me on to the grass, she wanted to fight and he was waving his gun and calling me all kind of names and prerogatives,” says Jones.

Jones says she didn’t have any prior exchange with the other driver, but she says she was driving the speed limit, which might have made them mad.

While Jones also carries a pistol, she didn’t reach for her firearm when she saw theirs. She grabbed her phone instead. 

“And it wasn’t until I pulled out my phone and they reversed to leave.” Jones managed to grab a picture of the man and woman and the firearm the man was holding.
