Oklahoma City police are investigating a road rage incident that nearly ruined three metro residents' vacation.
Officers arrested Alexa Anders, 26, on Wednesday after she was accused of pulling a gun on the victims and threatened to shoot them.
The victims were able to lead officers to the suspect.
When police caught up with Anders they found a gun and a large amount of drugs and money in her car.
Caller: “She just pulled a gun on us with our kids in the car.”
911 Dispatcher: “She did pull a gun on you?”
Caller: “Yes, she did!”
Brooke McDade, her friend and her friend's 13-year-old daughter were in a rental car and driving on S Meridian Avenue near Interstate 40 when they said Anders nearly ran them off the road.
“She really almost hit us and it’s like she was mad we were there or something,” said McDade, road rage victim. “Like, girl, we didn’t even do nothing to you.”
McDade said Anders then pulled out a gun and threatened to shoot them.
“She just went from zero to 100,” said McDade.
They were even more shocked when they stopped at a red light next to Anders.
“She tried to take her seatbelt off to get out,” said McDade. “So we sped off. She speeds off. So we’re going side-by-side and she’s trying to run us into the side of the road.”
They managed to get behind Anders. They kept an eye on her the entire time while on the phone with 911.
911 Dispatcher: “Is it the AutoZone on 10th?”
Caller: “Yes, ma’am. The police is here.”
McDade recorded the scene at AutoZone and posted the video on Facebook.
Police said Anders was taken to the hospital after complaining of having an anxiety attack and then she was booked into the Oklahoma County jail on three complaints of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and four drug-related complaints.
“It’s important to note the gun was recovered,” said Master Sgt. Gary Knight, Oklahoma City Police Department. “There was also a significant amount of drugs found in the vehicle to include methamphetamines, heroin and marijuana. There was also a significant amount of cash found.”
