Mary Frances Alday, 61, was in a Walmart in Crawfordville, Florida, when her $1-off coupon was rejected. She became angry and hit a manager with a shopping cart, and was subsequently escorted out. But she made threats, and once at her car she pulled out a loaded Smith & Wesson .38 Special and pointed it at employees, threatening to shoot them.
Alday was then pulled over by the police, but refused to hand over her weapon, until she was tased and dragged from her car.
Alday is a legal conceal carry permit holder.
From an article:
As several Walmart employees watched from the store’s entrance, Alday appeared outside her car “waving the gun in the holster,” reported investigators. Alday then removed the weapon--a loaded Smith & Wesson .38 Special--from the holster and pointed it “at all the store employees and stated ‘I have something for Y’all.’” The Walmart workers “retreated back inside the building due to being in fear for their lives.”
Alday, who fled the Walmart parking lot in a 2011 Ford Escape, was subsequently pulled over by a sheriff’s deputy who asked if there was a firearm in the SUV.
“Yes, I have a concealed weapons permit, and you are not taking my gun.” Asked about the gun’s location, Alday replied, “You’re not taking my gun.”
Alday twice refused the deputy’s request to exit the auto, and was tasered when she “reached over the console for something in the passenger seat.” Alday was then dragged from the car and handcuffed. The gun was found in the vehicle’s center console. ....
Alday was charged with four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of battery. She was booked into the county jail, where she remains in custody in advance of an initial court appearance.
Sheriff’s reports do not indicate the Walmart item for which Alday was seeking to save a dollar.
