A white Oakland County, Michigan couple were charged with felony assault on Thursday after a video of a pregnant woman defending herself from a black woman with a firearm went viral.
Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper charged Jillian Wuestenberg , 32, and Eric Wuestenberg, 42, each with one count of felonious assault, a four-year felony, the Detroit News reported.
Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper charged Jillian Wuestenberg, 32, and Eric Wuestenberg, 42, each with one count of felonious assault, a four-year felony. The Independence Township couple each possessed one loaded firearm and CPL licenses, Sheriff Mike Bouchard said.
The couple was arraigned Thursday at 52-3 District Court in Rochester Hills.
Both were given a $50,000 personal bond.
As part of the bond conditions, they must turn over all firearms, not engage in any assaultive behavior, and may not leave the state, sheriffs officials said.
The incident stemmed from a bump and lack of apology, according to Bouchard.
Lets have a little more tolerance for each other and not being so quick to react, Bouchard said. If someone is doing something improper or unfair, I tell my family and friends to look away. This is not the moment to plant your flag.
A white couple leaving a Chipotle restaurant this week were falsely accused of racism by a black woman and her 15-year-old daughter.
The black woman accused a pregnant white woman of bumping into her daughter near the e
ntrance of the restaurant and demanded an apology.
The white woman tried to deescalate the confrontation by peacefully walking away and got into her car as the black woman called her a dumbass bitch.
The black woman then turned her ire toward white womans husband and threatened him: And if you say something Ill beat your white ass too.
As the white couple backed up their vehicle to leave the parking lot, the black woman rushed behind the SUV to block them from leaving and accused them of trying to hit her.
The black woman pounded on the vehicle and threatened to beat them.
This is when the confrontation escalated.
The white woman got out of the car and pulled out her firearm after being assaulted and threatened, Get the f*ck away! she screamed. Back the f*ck up!
Eric Wuestenberg was fired from his job at Oakland University following the incident.
We have seen the video, and we deem his behavior unacceptable. the university said in a statement.
Video at link
they are white, the local government and his employer say they are guilty, no need to check the details.
Seems like hubby has grounds to sue his former employer. I hope he does.
The couple should also countercharge this DA for malicious prosecution.
The government will use any excuse to take guns away. That’s how they’ll do it. One patriot at a time.
So black people can assault with no penalty, but if white people defend themselves from assault by black people they will be charged with a felony?
It is San Fagcisco, the white woman probably voted for it.
Funny how now all we are going to see now is videos of white folks pulling out a firearm because they are defending themselves and they are going to be prosecuted for it. In the mean time Chicago and other urban centers black folks are pulling guns out and shooting and killing each other buy the dozens every week. Where are the videos of that ? NOT !
Jessica Cooper should wake up dead.
Nope, Michigan. She may still have voted for it, though.
It was a setup. The couple should have been making their own video and immediately have called the police when the woman started beating on their car.
“This outrageous. The couple was being harassed by the black woman and just wanted to drive away. The woman charged only drew women after the black woman started beating on their car.”
My tagline explains everything.
Definitely a set-up.
This is the Oakland University near Detroit, but the same points apply
And, unfortunately, they not only fell for it, they let the other side define what happened without video of their own. They should have been recording from the second they noticed they were being recorded and the other one should have called the cops - thus establishing the basis of fearing for their lives, etc.
its totally proper behavior
for the attacked couple, that is
Charged with felonious assault for defending themselves against a belligerent woman who would not back off even with a gun pointed at her, who may have damaged their car, and who was impeding their ability to drive away? The prosecutor has the assaulting party backward.
The pregnant woman tried to resolve the issue calmly, but was met with resistance, bullying, harassment, and name calling by the black woman, and her 15 year old daughter who was filming it all. They were the ones being chased and accosted by the black woman...not the other way around. They tried to leave in their car, but were blocked by the black woman. When the pregnant woman felt she and her husband’s safety was being threatened by someone who wouldn’t step off, she came out of her car with her weapon drawn, and told the woman repeatedly, to step back. The black woman would not stop approaching the white woman, and the girl had to continually take steps back to get away as the black woman kept approaching. Don’t you love it when belligerent blacks call you a racist, and yet they are the ones harassing you to the point that you have to draw a weapon to get them to stop?
This is what happens when society gets out of control.
Right is wrong, wrong is right.
The pregnant woman tried to look away, but the stupid black bitch kept coming at her, screaming in her face, and wouldn't stop. How do you look away when the person attacking you won't go away, to the point that they block your car from leaving? This is just a stupid, ignorant remark by a clueless bureaucrat.
