July 23, 2014 4:53 p.m.

A woman was arrested on Tuesday after she allegedly pulled out a gun when asked to slow down in a Rutherford County, Tenn. Wal-Mart parking lot, according to WGNS News.

Angela Scruggs told police that after a man in the parking lot told her to “stop speeding,” she put her .22 caliber handgun on her lap. She said that the man who yelled for her to slow down approached her with his hands in his pocket, prompting her to get her gun.

Scruggs was pulled over by police soon after she left the parking lot.

Jason Hill called the police, and said that when he asked Scruggs to “slow down,” she pointed her gun at him. When he told Scruggs he would call the police, she responded, “I don’t care, I got a carry permit.”

A witness told police that Scruggs told Hill she would shoot him, according to WGNS.

Scruggs was charged with aggravated assault.
