A Michigan man and his wife, the white woman who pointed a pistol at a black mother and her 15-year-old daughter in a Chipotle parking lot, were arrested Thursday for the clash caught on camera.
Jillian Wuestenberg, 32, and Eric Wuestenberg, 42, face assault charges after the woman was registered pointing a gun at the teenager’s mother, Takelia Hill, in the restaurant parking lot in Lake Orion on Wednesday. the Detroit News reported, citing Oakland County District Attorney Jessica Cooper.
The heated confrontation erupted after Jillian reportedly ran into Hill’s teenage daughter Makayla Green as she left the Chipotle in Orio around 6 p.m.
The alleged blow was not captured on video. The footage is captured after the altercation moved to the parking lot, and begins with Hill and her daughter arguing with the unidentified woman while demanding an apology, the newspaper reported.
“You are very racist and ignorant,” says the teenager at one point, after the husband in the driver’s seat of the SUV helps Jillian climb into the passenger seat.
The altercation continues with Jillian telling Hill: “You can’t just call racist whites.”
“Why would you hit her? Why didn’t you apologize Hill continually asks the woman in response.
Jillian goes on to say, “Whites are not racist … I care about you and I’m sorry if you had an incident that has made someone feel like this.” No one is racist. “
Jillian closes the window and the SUV starts backing out of the parking spot.
Hill is seen backing up as the SUV begins to pull away, before it hits the vehicle’s rear window, claiming he thought the driver was going to hit them.
That’s when Jillian jumps out of the SUV and points a gun at Hill and her daughter, and Hill can be heard saying, “She gave me the gun!” while the woman screams: “Get your f – k back!”
Police were called about the incident six times, authorities revealed at a press conference on Thursday afternoon, according to the report.
One of the calls came from Jillian, who stated that she felt threatened and that two women were trying to damage her car.
Chipotle workers made other calls to 911 and said they witnessed Jillian brandishing her weapon.
Jillian was arrested in the parking lot Wednesday night. Her husband also carried a pistol and both had concealed pistol licenses, authorities said Thursday.
