PASADENA, Md. (WUSA) -- A woman and her male friend are charged with assault after she became upset over a protective order.
According to Anne Arundel County Police, the woman was involved and charged in a domestic-related incident with her husband on Thursday. Police say she came back to her home in Pasadena later to get some of her property and learned that there was a protective order against her.
That's when she got a shotgun and assaulted her husband, say police. She then gave the gun to a male acquaintance who pointed it at the husband and threatened his life. The acquaintance assaulted the husband, say police. Then, the woman and her acquaintance fled the home in a Toyota Sequoia.
When officers arrived, the acquaintance tried to ram into one of the officers, say police. The Sequoia was later seen on Route 100 West and stopped by officers. The gun was found on the side of the road, and police say the suspect discarded it before the traffic stop.
The woman and her acquaintance, who are not being named here to protect the identity of the victim, were charged with first and second degree assault and other charges.
The husband suffered minor injuries and was treated at Baltimore Washington Medical Center.
