83-year-old woman arrested after allegedly wielding gun
Associated Press

WHITE SETTLEMENT - An 83-year-old woman was pushed to the ground by police and arrested after allegedly brandishing a handgun during a small-town parade.

Witnesses said the woman argued with parade-goers and threatened them.

``My mother and brother were screaming, 'She's got a gun,' `` Yvette Landwert of Fort Worth told KTVT-TV in Dallas. ``People were running behind buildings. There was panic for a little while.''

Landwert said she believes the woman, whose name was not released, was angry at parade watchers for sitting on a curb in front of her home.

The parade was halted, and police talked the woman out of surrendering the gun before an officer grabbed her, tripping her and pushing her to the grass. Another witness, Felipe Zamora, videotaped the incident.

Police said the woman was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and would make an initial appearance before a judge Sunday.

``Anytime a person has a weapon, everyone's in danger,'' said White Settlement police spokesman John Clapp.

White Settlement is just west of Fort Worth.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

I wonder if "a person" includes police?

``Anytime a person has a weapon, everyone's in danger,'' said White Settlement police spokesman John Clapp.

I read that also in the Houston Commical this morning. Typical leftist drivel from an APPOINTED "spokesperson" for a shitty little police dept.

Notice the number of absolutes in his statement, "anytime" and "everyone."

Can someone find and email address for this idiot "spokesperson?"
