Florida Woman Pulls Gun On TV Journalist
Claire Metz, a reporter with WESH-TV in Orlando, went to the home of Shauna Justice and knocked on the door. Justice had just lost her job as a police dispatcher and Metz wanted to get the story. It didn’t go well.
When Justice answered the door, she yelled at Metz to get off her property and waved a gun towards her. Metz backed away, asking Justice to calm down.
Police were called and Justice was arrested. Sheriff’s spokesman Gary Davidson said Justice told police she was justified in pointing the gun at Metz because she “felt harassed to the point where she felt threatened.”
Metz was not carrying a microphone and didn’t have a camera in her hands.
Justice, 28, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A loaded 9mm semi-automatic handgun was confiscated. She was later released on bail.
