A Key Largo woman was arrested Wednesday after she pointed a gun at one of her roommates after he hid her vodka from her.
When Sgt. Jason Madnick and Deputy Sydney Whitehouse arrived at the home on Second Terrace at 6:15 p.m., they found the victim standing outside. The suspect, 51 year old Kari Dangler was just going inside.
The victim told Sgt. Madnick Dangler had pointed a gun at him. He said the gun was a stainless revolver in a black holster.
Sgt. Madnick then confronted Dangler with her roommate’s accusation. She said the gun belonged to her other roommate and she’d only gone to get it so she could clean it. The gun – a stainless Colt Python – was retrieved from a bedroom.
Inside the gun was a spent bullet casing. Sgt. Madnick asked about it and Dangler said she shot the firearm the week before in the area of the pool 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. At the time, responding deputies could not find the source of the weapons fire.
Dangler was arrested. She was charged with aggravated assault and she was booked into jail.
