    Port Angeles woman allegedly pulls gun on Wal-Mart customers




    By Tom Callis

    PORT ANGELES -- A 37-year-old woman was arrested after the Clallam County Sheriff's Department said she threatened several people with a handgun in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

    Clallam County Undersheriff Ron Peregrin said Teresa Nadine Dumdie of Port Angeles threatened four other customers with a .22 caliber handgun at 4:54 p.m. Friday outside the store at 3500 E. U.S. Highway 101.

    No one was injured.

    Peregrin said Dumdie had argued with customers in the store after they had asked her to stop cursing and yelling at an employee.


    Wrong ammunition

    He said she was upset with the employee, saying she had sold her the wrong kind of ammunition.

    After she received her refund, she walked out to the parking lot, removed a gun from her car and confronted the customers she had argued with earlier inside the store, Peregrin said.

    "The long and the short of it is, she didn't like what was happening at the store . . . and as a result, pulled a weapon and threatened people with it out in the parking lot," he said.

    Sheriff's deputies arrested Dumdie at 5:05 p.m. across the highway from Wal-Mart. She was booked into the Clallam County jail on investigation of first-degree assault.

    Dumdie had left Wal-Mart in her car as the four deputies arrived.

    "Our deputies got there before she was able to leave the scene," he said, "before she was able to threaten anyone else or cause any harm."

    Peregrin said the Wal-Mart employees did the right thing by immediately notifying the Sheriff's Department.

    "They did everything right in that regard," he said.

    I kind of wonder about this. I understand that the woman got all butthurt but I also think that she probably pulled the gun out intending to show everyone that she was right all along:

    "SEEEE!!! Look, this is MY gun that takes 38 special, not 9mm like the clerk said!!!"

    That kind of gun waving. I wonder if she really wasn't meaning to threaten anyone, just show them that she was right.

    She probably just dropped it out of her bag when putting away her receipt. If the scenario you described was reported by the media, the headline would read:

    "Crazed Gun Nut Holds 10 Hostages At Gunpoint While Attempting to Rob Local Wal-Mart."
