A Florida woman pulled a gun on a man during sex and demanded money, causing him to lose control of his moving car, police said.
Amanda Jean Linscott, 26, fled the scene on foot after the vehicle struck a palm tree, went airborne and plowed through two front yards, said police in Port Charlotte, Fla..
After a weeklong investigation, Linscott was arrested today on an armed robbery charge.
Her left eye, visibly bruised in her mug shot, was injured as a result of the victim punching her in the face during the skirmish, which occurred during the early hours of Sept. 3, police said.
Hours earlier, Linscott, who was accompanied by a friend, met the victim and two of his friends at the Paddy Wagon Irish Pub in Port Charlotte, police said.
After the bar closed, the men invited the women to come to a private residence, where the victim 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," Bob Carpenter, a spokesperson for the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office, said in a statement.
When the victim went to the bathroom, both women left the home, police said.
The victim then called Linscott's friend's cell phone and agreed to meet her at a local convenience store. Instead of encountering the woman who left with his $120, the victim met Linscott, who claimed her friend had ditched her, police said.
Linscott got into the victim's Nissan Sentra, at which point she began touching the man and having sex with him while he was driving, the man told police.
Linscott allegedly demanded money. When the man told her he had already given her friend $120, she put a .357 Taurus revolver to the man's head, police said.
During the melee, the victim lost control of his car, striking a palm tree and barreling through two front yards before his vehicle came to a stop, at which point Linscott fled the scene.
The victim managed to drive his wrecked car to his two friends' home, where he gave them the gun that had been left behind and called police.
When deputies responded to the area, they saw an elderly man in a driveway who told them his daughter, Amanda Linscott, was in a crash and had been punched in the face, police said.
After gathering statements from all parties and examining evidence, there was reason to arrest Linscott on an armed robbery charge, police said.
She is being held at Charlotte County Jail without bond.
It was not yet clear whether Linscott had an attorney.
