“To make a threat of a person’s life using it, there’s a price to pay for that and you’re going to jail and I’m not gonna let this go,” Karel Watson said, with her son adding that the friend carjacked him and had been serving time behind bars.

In the video, the ex-friend claims he “did a little time in county, but I’m back out bro”

“I’m pressing charges,” Karel Watson said. “There is nothing you can do to talk me out of it, to stop it, no. He has to learn.”
