CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A $1 million lawsuit has been filed against the woman arrested back in November for pulling a gun on a driver and her passengers in the parking lot of the H-E-B grocery store in Annaville, Texas.
It was Nov. 24 when police said 60-year-old Rossie Dennis parked behind the victim, blocking her into a parking space, and got out of her vehicle. She then walked to the driver's side of the victims car and pointed a handgun at the victim, threatening to pull the trigger over a parking spot dispute.
The victim, who had her 6-month-old child and two friends in the vehicle with her, caught the incident on camera. That video helped police secure a warrant for Dennis' arrest. She was arrested Nov. 30.
On Monday, 3News received a copy of a lawsuit filed in Nueces County Court of Law No. 3 against Dennis for assault and threat of bodily injury, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligence.
The lawsuit seeks monetary relief for these damages of more than $250,000, but not to exceed $1 million in compensation. The lawsuit also specifies that the plaintiff wants a jury trial.
