A Missouri woman was caught on camera pointing a loaded handgun at a group of apparently unarmed teenagers who she claimed were going to fight with her 15-year-old son.
The fight reportedly ensued after Tracy and Don Leeser’s son Brett asked his parents to show up to Fleet Park in St. Charles County to protect him from teens who wanted to "beat him up."
The incident was captured on camera and uploaded on the Internet by 15-year-old Tyrelle Ware – one of the boys involved in the feud – where it grabbed the attention of police.
The video shows the woman screaming at a group of boys to stay away from her son while her husband can be seen with a baseball bat in his hand.
“They were within a foot of me, threatening me and my family,” Leeser told a local news channel in an interview. “I was scared to death.”
“Worst-case scenario, yes, I would have used it. But I didn't,” added the woman who claimed she brought a gun to protect herself in a petty neighborhood feud.
No arrests have been made yet, but the police are still looking into the case.
