Still, should have been a defensive gun use?
First, here’s the official version of the story via ksl.com: “A woman was arrested Wednesday after hitting a vehicle with a tire iron and attempting to rob two men, police said. The incident occurred around 9:45 a.m. at Yankee Meadows Reservoir, according to the Iron County Sheriff’s Department. Siobahn Denise Hall, 29, [above] followed two men driving off I-15 who were headed toward Yankee Reservoir, police said. The men were St. George residents who were driving to Yankee Meadows Reservoir to fish. Hall blocked the exit road with her car and then got out of the vehicle. She began hitting the victims’ car with a tire iron and demanding money, police said. The two victims exited their vehicle and were able to subdue Hall. A passerby saw the incident and drove to the Iron County Sheriff’s Office to alert police.” Now here’s the victim’s version . . .
She followed us to within 200 feet of Yankee meadows reservoir and then blocked the road in a very narrow, steep, muddy section of road. We couldn’t back up because we were pulling a boat, She sprayed me in the face with tire cleaner and then tried some other things before she took the tire iron out of her trunk and started striking my door repeated times. My friend had to get out of the car to draw her away from my door so I could get out of the vehicle. That is when she stuck at my friend with the tire iron but he was able to catch it with his hands and not get hit.
In the process of wrestling her down to the ground with the tire iron he did get scraped up enough to get blood on his clothes. I have a permit and almost always carry a 9mm but didn’t have it with me this time. We are just glad that we could take care of the situation without hurting her and hope that she gets the help she needs. There is a lot more to this story but the above are the basics.
