A woman in Rutherford County, Tennessee was arrested Tuesday after she allegedly brandished a gun at a man who told her to stop speeding through a Walmart parking lot.

Murfreesboro’s WGNS radio reported that 37-year-old Angela Scruggs was charged with aggravated assault for reportedly pointing the weapon and telling Jason Hill that she was going to shoot.

Hill told police that Scruggs nearly struck his son when she went speeding by in her Nissan Altima. He shouted to her to “stop speeding,” at which point a confrontation ensued.

Scruggs told police that she became alarmed when Hill approached her with his hands in his pockets and pulled her gun for self defense and placed it on her lap.

According to Hill, Scruggs pointed the weapon at him and threatened to shoot. When Hill said he was calling police, he said Scruggs responded, “I don’t care. I got a carry permit.”

She left the scene but was pulled over by Murfreesboro Police. Police confiscated a .22 caliber handgun that was entered as evidence in the case. Scruggs is due back in court in October.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."

Bill Maher rips Trump and ‘the gang that couldn’t do treason straight’ on Real Time

Published

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher ripped the incompetence of the Trump administration after acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney confessed that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine in Rudy Giuliani's search for foreign election assistance.

"It's not just that he's always breaking the law, it's that he obviously wants you to know about it," Maher said. "The Joker doesn't want to get caught this bad."

"This is Trump's definition of three-dimensional chess, 'I'm going to distract you from impeaching me by committing more crimes," he said.

"It's like he comes home and Melania says to him, 'you have lipstick on your color,' and he says, 'you should see my d*ck,'" Maher said.
