Amanda Jean Linscott was arrested September 11, 2012 on an armed robbery charge.
A Florida woman who allegedly pulled a gun on a man during sex and demanded money, causing him to lose control of his moving car, was arrested Tuesday, police said.
The woman, Amanda Jean Linscott, 26, fled the scene on foot after the vehicle struck a palm tree, went airborne and plowed through two front yards, according to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office in Port Charlotte, Fla.
After a weeklong investigation, Linscott was arrested Tuesday on an armed robbery charge.
The incident, which happened during the early morning hours of September 3, was the result of a chain of events that started at the Paddy Wagon Irish Pub in Port Charlotte, according to a police report.
Linscott, accompanied by a friend, met with the unnamed victim and two of his friends at the bar. After it closed, the men invited the women to come to a private residence, where the man and another woman went into a bedroom to have sex, police said.
“The girl said she needed $250, which [the victim] said he didn’t have. She asked how much he had and he gave her $120,” the police report said.
Then, the man went to the bathroom and both women left the house.
Police said the man called the woman to whom he gave the money and arranged to meet her at a local convenience store. When he arrived at the location, he instead found Linscott, who said her friend had left her.
Linscott then got into the man’s car and began having sex with him while he was driving his Nissan Sentra.
Linscott allegedly demanded money from the man, who told her he had already given $120 to her friend. At that point, she pulled out a .357 revolver and held it to the man’s head, police said.
The man grabbed the weapon and punched Linscott in the face, he told police, causing him to lose control of his car. The vehicle struck a palm tree and went through two yards before coming to a stop.
At that point, Linscott fled the scene.
The man drove his car to his friends' house, where he gave them the gun and called police.
When police responded to the scene, they found an elderly man in a driveway who told them his daughter, Amanda Linscott, was in a car accident and had been punched in the face, police said.
Police questioned all parties involved and later arrested Linscott. She is currently being held at the Charlotte County Jail without bond.
