Charlotte County detectives have arrested a woman they say pulled gun on man while attempting to have sex in a moving car that resulted in a crash, WWSB TV reports. Arrested was 26-year-old Amanda Jean Linscott.
According to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office, the incident began Sept. 2, when the victim and his two friends went to the Paddy Wagon Irish Pub in Port Charlotte. When the bar closed early , they invited two girls they met to one of the friend’s home. One of the women and the victim went into a bedroom to have sex.
The girl said she needed $250, which he said he didn’t have. She asked how much he had and he gave her $120. The victim then went to the bathroom and when he returned, found the two women had left the home.
The victim had obtained the woman’s cellphone number earlier and called her. They agreed to meet, but when he got there, Linscott walked up and said the other girl left her.
Linscott then got into his car and as they drove off, he said she began touching him and having sex while he was driving.
The victim told detectives she also said she needed money and he told her he already gave her friend $120. The victim said Linscott then put a .357 Taurus revolver to his head and demanded money.
He grabbed the gun and a fight ensued in the moving car. He said he punched her in the head so she would release the gun. He also told detectives he was in fear of his life and lost control of his car, hit a palm tree and ran across two front yards. Linscott got out and fled the scene.
