Christina Blair Albuquerque NM woman pulls gun on driver after becoming enraged with their pro vaccine bumper sticker.
On February 27, Christina Blair, of Albuquerque reportedly became incensed upon seeing the man’s bumper sticker, which declared he had been vaccinated against COVID-19, and started honking her car horn, cursing at him and even throwing water bottles at the man’s car while the two were stopped a red light, KTLA reported.
The 33-year-old eventually followed the man into a Walgreens parking lot after he accidentally backed into her vehicle in an effort to get away from her, prompting Blair to pull out a handgun in a threatening way, according to police.
The man, who was not named, said Blair ‘racked the slide’ of the gun, causing him to back away and call 911 ‘in fear that she was going to shoot him.’
The man showed a video of the incident to police where Blair can be seen pulling out a gun and loading the chamber.
Blair has since been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon ABQJournal reported.
‘Through the course of my investigation, I was able to determine that (Blair) did have an opportunity to leave… but instead overtly reached into her vehicle and retrieved a handgun threatening (the man),’ the arresting officer wrote.
Police were able to track Blair down at her home using her license plate, authorities said.
Blair, who reportedly works for a car dealership, admitted to police that she pulled out her gun during the incident, but said she did so because ‘she was scared.’
The district attorney’s office has filed a motion to keep Blair behind bars at the Metropolitan Detention Center until trial, where she remains as of Thursday, calling her a ‘dangerous person.’
The woman’s criminal history includes four juvenile offenses that were ‘all violent in nature,’ according to online court records.
She was sentenced to three years of probation in 2007 after pleading guilty to aggravated assault and tampering with evidence, however the details of that case were not made public.
