KEY LARGO, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A local woman was arrested after pointing a gun at one of her roommates. She reportedly did so because he hid her vodka from her.
According to a press release published by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office in the Florida Keys, authorities were called to the scene of the altercation between the suspect, 51-year-old Kari Dangler, and her roommate on Wednesday.
When two officers – Sgt. Jason Madnick and Deputy Sydney Whitehouse – arrived, they spoke with the victim, who was said to be standing outside when the responding officers pulled up. He told them Dangler had pointed a revolver at him because he had hidden her booze supply.
When Sgt. Madnick spoke to Dangler, she claimed she was merely cleaning the gun.
Subsequent investigation revealed that Dangler had previously fired the weapon, described in the release as a stainless Colt Python, several days prior because “a frog was making noises.”
“Sheriff’s Office records show a shots fired call in that area on June 4th at 10 p.m.,” the release added. “At the time, responding deputies could not find the source of the weapons fire.”
Dangler was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. She was then remanded to a local prison, according to authorities.
