Florida woman pulled gun on pair she thought were cutting Hurricane Ian gas line: police

A Florida woman was arrested for allegedly pointing a gun at two women she mistakenly believed were cutting a long gas line in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.

Terri Johns, 59, is accused of aiming a firearm at a car carrying the two women that she “felt was trying to skip the line to get gas,” Saturday, the Fort Myers Police Department said in a statement.

The car, however, was “simply trying to make a U-turn in the congested traffic,” authorities said.

Johns was hit with charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill and displaying a firearm during a felony, police said.

She was in custody at Lee County Jail as of Saturday night.

“This is the behavior that WILL NOT be tolerated at any time much less during this state of emergency,” Fort Myers police said.
