Police arrested Rossie Dennis, 60, on an outstanding warrant for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon stemming from a disturbance involving a parking spot.
“The dispute between Dennis and the unnamed woman in the car allegedly arose over a parking spot at an H-E-B, a Texas-based grocery store chain,” Law & Crime reports. “Screenshots from a cell phone video allegedly taken by the woman in the car went viral on social media, such as this Reddit post identifying the incident as happening at an H-E-B in Corpus Christi’s Annaville neighborhood. ‘A Woman pulls and points a gun at a woman with her 6 month old baby in the car, because she believed she parked in her parking spot,’ said the post’s title.”
The Corpus Christi Police Department confirmed Dennis’ arrest in a Facebook post, noting that the warrant that had been issued for her arrest “stem[med] from an incident that occurred at approximately 12:21 pm on November 24, 2021, where officers were dispatched to the 11,100 block of Leopard for a disturbance in progress.”
“Upon arrival, officers were advised that a disturbance occurred in the parking lot over a parking space,” the CCPD statement continued. “The offender pointed a handgun at the victims and made a threat to shoot them. Officers were able to identify the female from video captured by one of the victims.”
“Officers were able to identify the female from video captured by one of the victims,” the department said in the statement.
The police statement did not identify the victims nor did police confirm that a “6 month old baby” was in the car.
Dennis’ bond was set at $50,000, according to the local CBS affiliate.
