A white lady and her husband have been charged with assault after she was seen pointing a gun at a Black mother and her teenage daughter in a now-viral video.
Michigan authorities discussed the altercation during a press conference on Thursday, where they explained that the conflict started after an alleged bumping incident at a Chipotle restaurant in Orion Township.
“Two very different stories from two different groups. Both sides claiming they feel extremely threatened,” Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said.
The catalyst and [the] moments before the incident intensified in the parking lot was not captured on the video posted on Facebook.
The video shows an interaction during which Hill claims Jillian Wuestenberg, 32, had just bumped into her 15-year-old daughter.
Wuestenberg claimed she was being blocked from entering her car before her husband, Eric Wuestenberg, 42, was seen on video helping usher her into the vehicle.
The couple and Hill argued and exchanged racial accusations before Hill appeared to move behind the couple’s vehicle.
Currently, the white family is in custody.
