COLUMBIA CITY â€” A 73-year-old woman was booked Saturday for threatening employees at Superior Auto with a screwdriver.
According to a Columbia City Police case report, Jeanne Wiedman, of Columbia City, was upset after her vehicle was repossessed, and went to the car store to dispute the action.
Wiedman allegedly pulled out a screwdriver and told an employee she was going to stab him, holding the tool a few inches from his stomach, and saying, â€śIâ€™m going to hurt you if you donâ€™t give me my stuff now.â€ť
According to police reports, Wiedman called the Columbia City Police Dispatch to file a complaint about her car repossession.
In his report, CCPD Officer Jon Stoffel said he was in dispatch when the call came in.
â€śOur dispatcher explained there was nothing the police could do because Superior Auto repossessed her vehicle,â€ť Stoffel said in his report. â€śThe female (Wiedman) then hung up on the dispatcher.â€ť
