Birthday Celebrant Tries To Rob Her Limo Driver

Melanie Roberts hired a limo driver to celebrate her 50th birthday in style in Connecticut. As the party winded down and the driver dropped Roberts home, she had a dispute over how much she owed him just after midnight on Monday. According to police, Roberts removed the keys from the vehicle, ran to her home and grabbed a loaded 9mm pistol. She then threatened to "shoot-out" the tires.

A news release reads, "The woman then reached inside the limousine and removed a GPS mapping device and clipboard which contained money and her signed contract for the service."

Police then arrived and arrested her. The 9mm pistol was also found on her person. Cpl. Stanley F. Parizio Jr. said "Anytime you mix alcohol, heightened emotions and a firearm...things can turn sideways. We were fortunate that no one was injured and that no shots were fired."

Roberts was detained on $100,000 bond on six charges: sixth-degree larceny, first-degree robbery, breach of peach, second-degree threatening and carrying a firearm under the influence. She was released on $100,000 bond.
