A homeowner in Fairfield County, Ohio, defended herself when a man attacked her after a car crash on Oct. 29, 2021.

Earlier that day, a car wrecked in the street and the driver ran off immediately after the accident. As two homeowners of the residence near the car crash went out to investigate, the driver returned to the scene and confronted them. The driver became aggressive towards the man and woman as they stood outside their home, and began to physically strike both of them. As the homeowners fought to defend themselves from the unexpected aggression, the woman drew a pistol and verbally ordered the agitated man to stop his assault.

However, the assailant paid no attention to the warning and instead focused his attack on the armed homeowner. She ordered the assailant to stop several more times, all of which were ignored, before finally firing five rounds. Three of the rounds struck the assailing driver, subduing him and ending his assault on the homeowners. He was taken to a local medical center in critical condition after authorities arrived.

From the Armed Citizen® Archives - March 14, 1987

Jimmy Amerine was closing his Madera, Calif., store when three armed men entered. One picked up Amerine's 3-year-old daughter and put a gun to her head. The owner drew his own revolver, but in the struggle to free his daughter the gun was taken away and he was slashed with a knife. As the robbers fled with money from the store and the daughter, Amerine took a second gun and followed them outside, where he ordered that his daughter be released or he would shoot. The girl was let go, and the trio fled (The Bee, Fresno, Calif.)
