Florida Woman Points Gun At Lawn Worker Over Loud Noise

Volusia Sheriff

If only they made a silencer for lawn mowers.

A Florida woman disturbed from slumber by routine grass maintenance is accused of pulling a pistol on a shocked landscaper, WKMG reports.

Gina Briggs, 26, was arrested in Ormond Beach on Monday for her alleged overreaction. The victim was removing grass clippings from a sidewalk near her apartment at the time.

Carlos Repicio, the victim landscaper, described the experience to WFTV.

"I say, 'I got to work here.' She say, 'I don't care. You got to get out of here because I'm killing you.' And I say, 'What?' And she take the gun out and she point to me like that," said Repicio.

Repicio hid behind his truck and called police, who arrived and arrested Briggs. The suspect later told police that she would have shot Repicio in the head, but, like a lawnmower missing a blade, she forgot to load the gun, according to WESH.

Briggs is charged with carrying a concealed firearm and aggravated assault. She is being held at the Volusia County Jail.
