Armed woman: 'I'm tired of people tailgating me'

Authorities say Bernadette Houghton Headd had an explanation for them when she was arrested on charges of pulling out a handgun and firing at another car:

"I'm tired of people tailgating me," she told police.

Headd, 39, of Macomb Township was charged Thursday in 41-B District Court with assault with a deadly weapon, discharge of a firearm from a motor vehicle and using a firearm during a felony. She could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

Police said Headd was in a 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier entering I-94 from Hall Road in Harrison Township at 8:10 a.m. Wednesday when a Dodge Ram inched up behind her.

Headd pulled alongside the Dodge and fired at its tires with a semiautomatic gun. Her shots missed, and no one was injured. The pickup driver flagged down a sheriff's deputy.

"Most people wave their fist and a certain finger, but she went to the extreme," said Macomb Sheriff's Capt. Tony Wickersham. Headd had a permit for the gun.

I don't give a shit about people tailgating me as long as they don't hit me if I have to brake hard. I wouldn't really care all that much if it wasn't a CCW holder, but stuff like this hurts us all.

She can see the tailgaters clearly from her seat in the back of the short bus.

That just how we roll here in the D...what can i say ,Were still pissed about loosing the title of murder capital and were trying to get it back.....
she kinda looks like this ...
Im thinking she wouldnt make it through a ccw class,suprised the guns even legal.

We can laugh but GOD DAMIT why do these asshats have to make us look bad. You know the gun grabbers will use the fact she had a permit big time. Knowing full well the permit has nothing to do with the crime. Her permit was toilet paper the secound she pulled the trigger. DAM THIS SHIT PISSES ME OFF!!!

Good case for forced abortion if you asked me!!!!!

That look is priceless.

Well I bet that tailgating moron won't ever do that again. No I don't advocate the shooting of tailgaters, but they are a serious safety issue and need to wake and grow the fuck up.

If the tailgater knew what she looked like, I bet he wouldn't have been following so closely.
Link Posted: 2/27/2007 12:07:19 PM EST
Wow, that's all I can say.
Link Posted: 2/27/2007 12:07:21 PM EST
Oh the gun grabbers are going to be all over this shit... This is one statistic that we'd been able to keep clean for a long time. No CCW used in an incident of road rage. I hope that we find out that this woman is mentally deficient, as her picture lets on, and we can minimize damage control

I'm tired of people who don't know how to merge, but I'm not shooting at them.

You'd think we'd have a Michigan LEO around here somewhere who could clear that issue up for us.

Not an LEO, but I haven't heard anything if she had a CCW or not.

Probably just a permit (green card), but I don't expect the media to point that out.

She looks like she could fry the hell out of some chicken though

I know I've seen her in a Crisco commercial.

"Mentally deficient woman (who bears a striking resembelance to Child star Gary Coleman, circa 1977-1980) was issued a conceled carry permit despite her mental condition. When asked about the state's screening process and possibiliity that other mentally unstable applicants might have received permits as well, Department of Public Safety Supervisor, Deputy Dog stated: "these things happen".


How is the "fact" (s)he/it is mentally deficient damage control? Sounds worse to me.
