This one is going to count as a DGU, because even though this South Carolina mother only had a BB gun to hold this creeper at gunpoint, it was enough to get the job done and hold the 23-year-old man until the police arrived.
And besides, anti-gunners are going after air guns just as much as real guns, and as we reported a few weeks ago a pellet gun can actually get the SWAT team to show up at your house along with every cop in the county.
If anything this mother deserves a medal for having enough restraint not to shoot the guy, but it’s actually a good thing she didn’t pull the trigger or he might have figured out that it went pew-pew instead of bang-bang.
The mother’s identity is not being mentioned to protect the 15-year-old daughter in this story. But apparently the mother came home to find the man hiding in a bathroom in the house.
According to WJHL,
“If he tried to escape, I would have shot him,” she said.
Around 3:30 Sunday morning, she noticed an unfamiliar car in her driveway off of Munn Road.
She says she sent her oldest daughter to check the home and when she did, she found Addison Pittman in one of her bathrooms.
The mother quickly grabbed a BB gun.
“I had it (the gun) held just like this. I had it point towards his chest and I held him,” she said.
She held up Pittman until Sheriff Deputies arrived.
At first, the mother thought Pittman was a burglar until her 15-year-old daughter revealed she invited the man over to have sex after.
The daughter met Pittman on the popular social media website Kik.
According to Deputies’ reports, Pittman and the daughter had been in contact for 5 months and she knew he was 23.
Pittman told the mother he was 17 and she didn’t find out his actual age until deputies showed up.
“If I knew he was 23 at the time, I probably would have pulled this BB gun and shot him,” said the mother.
What scares this Fort Mill mother even more is the thought of what could have happened.
“What’s to say he wouldn’t have choked her or had a weapon on him, killed her and I would have found her dead,” she said.
The mother now has this message for parents.
“Talk to your kids often even though they tell you that they deserve their privacy, and they do, but to an extent.”
