KEY LARGO, Fla. — Authorities in Florida have arrested a woman on a charge that she pointed a gun as she passed a family driving in another vehicle.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday in a news release that Christina Bonner faces improper exhibition of a firearm and possession of illegal substances charges.

The driver of the other car told deputies that Bonner was flashing her lights and tailgating him as he drove with his family on U.S. 1 in Key Largo, Florida Saturday night.

The driver told deputies that as Bonner passed his car, she pointed a gun. He called deputies, who stopped Bonner’s vehicle a short time later.

A deputy searched the vehicle and found two handguns, as well as well as marijuana.

Online records showed no attorney listed for Bonner.
