(Shelby County, TN) A woman has been arrested after she pulled a gun on another driver during a road rage incident Friday night.

That other driver had an infant in the car with her.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office told us the woman was driving in the area of Hacks Cross and Holmes Road attempting to merge in traffic around 6 p.m.

The woman was reportedly not able to merge as she wanted, so she pulled a Lorcin .380 handgun.

We are told an Olive Branch Police officer saw what happened, “as the responsible party crossed into Mississippi.”

Joanna Windless, 35, was arrested and charged with two counts of Aggravated Assault, and is being held at Jail East.

    Where would anyone need to go in such a hurry they feel it necessary to act like this? Slow down, we are all headed to the same place – why do you want to get the cemetery so quickly.

    Well the law was passed for Certain people to carry guns or whatever and I’m sitting here thinking what the heck were they thinking?It’s just begun.

      You uninformed cretin. This person was in Tennessee and carrying a loaded weapon in your car withing reach of the driver is illegal unless you have an HCP.

      This is yet another example of ghettoites having illegal guns and you would disarm the law abiding folks?

        I guess you know her and know whether or not there’s a cure for stupidity. I didn’t read any where it said the gun was loaded.

        The problem is that civilized members of society cannot tell the “law abiding” from the “crazy” until after the shooting. The difference is some people understand just because you may carry a gun does not mean it is a good idea.

    You wanna get sick??? … Watch the DA and a Judge whittle this charge down to nothing.

    At what time what color the person is a deciding factor on ignorant behavior? Stop, Look, Listen and look at what you missing.

    Its so unfair how im judged and portrayed in this blog. The facts are totally not true. The young lady was trying to merge and couldn’t get in son she ran me out of my lane. I furthur then pulled beside her was the lanes reopened and asked her why she was driving so crazy and ran me out of my lane. She began yelling obscenities and so I yelled them back and she began throwing things in my face from her car…keep in mind we were sitting still. she then called the police and told them I waived a gun at her and the witness in the car testified that she saw lady throw things at me but never saw me pull a gun. I forgive the media and judgemental people who were misled. God Bless

    Why is it always afro-american people that do this and other things. willie herenton once said that if a city is black majority then you can expect crime. makes since to anyone? but afro-americans elected this man over and over again.

    Gotta wonder about people who behave like this.

    They come in all races, but it’s ONE class of people.

    I hope this woman, and anyone who behaves like her, serves a substantial term in prison. Measured in years.

    This behavior is also a statement about the nature of life in Memphis/

  • Hard Truths

    I just spent a weekend in rural Alabama. People are SO much more courteous and civilized than in Memphis. I never thought I’d have anything good to say about Alabama, but I’m really looking forward to going back soon.

    I won’t even mention my delightful weekend in Nashville about three weeks ago. People there have at least 20 IQ points on Memphians.
