Loud music.

Drugs, sex, or both?

Hahahaa. I don't know, but that has to be in the running for one of the funniest mugshots ever.

What a cutiepie, huh?

Maybe that eye problem she's got going contributed to her bad aim.

My perfect little princess can do no wrong! I'm sure it is all the homeless guys fault.

The carpet most definitely does not match the drapes.

Or the the floor could be bare, more likely.

The woman driving the cayenne who was out with some friends is the crazy one and the bum sleeping on the sidewalk is totally normal and sane and trustworthy!

Smoke another bowl. The father's story makes a whole lot more sense.

Quote:
Jesse Quackenbush, Katie’s father, tells the story of the shooting differently.
An attorney in Texas, Jesse said his daughter and her friend were being accosted by Melton, whom he alleged approached the Porsche as the women sat inside, threatening to kill them and making explicit and sexist remarks at Quackenbush.

“She didn’t try and kill this guy,” Jesse Quackenbush said Monday night, a few hours after his daughter was arrested on the charge. “She had no intention of killing him. She didn’t know that she hit him.”

Katie Quackenbush, a single mother to a 5-year-old boy, had driven a friend back to her car when the women reportedly saw Melton harassing other women in the street nearby, Jesse said.

Melton then approached Quackenbush and her friend in the vehicle.

“He comes up to their window and starts screaming in their window various threats, and something about turning their music down and that he couldn’t sleep,” Jesse said.

After the man walked away, Katie Quackenbush got out of her car to escort her friend to a vehicle parked close by. She grabbed her gun and put a magazine inside.

Melton began walking toward her again, Jesse said, at which time his daughter told Melton she had a gun.

She fired two “warning shots” and then left, because Melton continued to approach the women, according to Jesse Quackenbush.

“She did say she closed her eyes when she shot both times, but they were warnings, and she thought she pointed away from him,” Jesse recalled.

When asked whether his daughter heard Melton scream or indicate he had been shot, Jesse said there was no indication he was injured.

The women left, deciding to go to a restaurant and come back later to deliver the passenger to her vehicle.

When they returned, Quackenbush’s friend’s car was surrounded by crime scene tape.

Jesse said his daughter obtained an attorney and eventually turned herself in for questioning by police.

He maintains she was wrongfully charged because she was defending herself from Melton.

“She has a son,” Jesse Quackenbush said. “She’s never done anything like this in her life. She had an eyewitness in the front seat.”

Metro police weren’t immediately available for comment late Monday night regarding allegations that Melton had threatened Quackenbush’s life.

She is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 6.

Warning shots? Agh, ya. No. She used deadly force as she approached him. She did not avoid the situation, she had ample opportunity to escape, I see her serving time and if not she should.

If you have an outstanding assault charge in another state, whipping your gun out whenever your feathers are ruffled dosen't seem too smart.

Yeah, she's a real classy broad to boot with only two prior assault charges, one still pending.

First assault charge against her own mother, doubt she gives a rats ass about assaulting a vagrant.

Dad must be proud.

Pointed the gun and fired 2 shots with her eyes closed. Should get jail time just for that.

Anyone defending her actions deserves a knucklehead participation trophy.

Lawyer's comments shall not be regarded as evidence.

Kind of rule one on these things.

Haha, closing your eyes pulling the trigger! Now it all makes sense.

Good example of someone that shouldn't own a gun. Not good.

And just like that she became famous. How many people have checked her out on YouTube or whatever and heard her 'music' since the news broke?

She says she was approached while inside the vehicle.
All she had to do , was drive off.
Instead she shot him outside and away from the vehicle.

It's going to cost her daddy a lot of time and money, and the bum will have plenty of cash at the end of this story.. She'll need a lot of good luck if she wants to avoid learning to sing the Folsom Prison Blues.
