Shauna Justice, a Volusia County 911 dispatcher, was arrested after pulling a gun on the reporter who showed up at her home to ask about Justice's recent suspension.

Yes, this story takes place in Florida, but who did Justice think she was? George Zimmerman?

Justice was suspended from her position as a 911 dispatcher for using her cell phone at work while a trainee in her charge gave paramedics an incorrect address which resulted in the death of an Ormond Beach man.

When Shauna Justice refused to speak to the media about the incident, WESH reporter Claire Metz decided to pay Justice a visit.

Metz approached Justice's door without a microphone or a camera at around 12:35 on Tuesday. Justice responded by answering the door and pointing a gun at Metz and yelling for the reporter to get off her property.

When questioned, Justice admitted to pulling the gun on Metz and said she felt justified in doing so because she was "protecting her property and felt harassed and threatened."

She now faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon but has been released on a $1,500 bond.
