White Woman Pulls Gun on Teen and Mom in Orion Twp Chipotle Parking Lot
(Crystal A. Proxmire, July 2, 2020)
Orion Township, MI – Video has surfaced of a tense incident Wednesday night at Chipotle in Orion Township on the Auburn Hills border. The videos show a dispute between women that reportedly began when the white woman leaving the restaurant bumped into a black teen who was entering at about 8pm.
According to The Detroit News, Takelia Hill and her 15-year-old daughter Makayla Green were entering the restaurant when the incident happened. The videos show the women exchanging words, and the white woman and her male companion trying to leave. During the exchange Hill told the male companion, “You say something, I’ll beat your white ass too.”
Hill was behind the vehicle as it was backing out, and she put her hand on the back window to alert the driver not to hit her. The white woman then got out of the vehicle and pulled a handgun, and aimed it at the mother, yelling “Get the fuck back!” She yelled several times with the gun pointed at the woman, before getting back into the car. A photo shows the woman being handcuffed moments later.
Jillian Deanne Wuestenberg, a 32-year-old female resident of Clarkston and Eric Peter Wuestenberg, a 42-year-old resident of Clarkston were both arraigned today at 52-3 District Court in front of Magistrate Marie Soma.
They were each charged with (1) Count of Felonious Assault which is a 4-year Felony. Both were give $50,000 personal bond. The next hearing for both will be a Probable Cause Conference before the Honorable Judge Julie Nicholson on July 14th.
As part of the bond conditions, they must turn over all firearms, not engage in any assaultive behavior, and may not leave the state.
Congressperson Elissa Slotkin (MI-08) released the following statement in response to an incident:
“Earlier today, I was profoundly disturbed to see the footage captured last night in Orion Township of a woman pointing a gun at a mom and daughter during an argument. Upon watching the longer clip of the episode, I was deeply disappointed to learn that the man who appears in the video alongside the armed woman had participated in one of my voluntary advisory boards, on veterans issues. His participation in the board was based on his professional role working with Oakland County veterans. The conduct of this man and his wife is beyond the pale of acceptable behavior and, earlier today, I removed him from my voluntary advisory board, effective immediately. And I am glad to see the couple has now been appropriately charged with felonious assault by the Oakland County Prosecutor.
“This incident in our community highlights how racial division can lead to violence. We can’t accept this as normal or justified behavior. Each of us has a role to play in ensuring division and violence doesn’t harm our communities in Michigan.”
