Orlando & The Freakshow

Weekdays 6AM - 10AM

A Clearwater woman used her 2nd Amendment rights to protect herself when a man broke into her bedroom and attacked her Tuesday morning.

Here’s what happened… She woke up to find Justin William Wright, 26, in her bedroom just before he attacked her. Wright was actually one of her neighbors down the street from her house.

Clearwater Police Chief Daniel Slaughter said, “She was able to reach out and call 911 during this attack, but the attack persisted. At which time, she was able to retrieve a gun that she had lawfully.”

Luckily, she was able to grab her gun and fatally shot him in self-defense. Slaughter said the woman had several injuries that go along with her self-defense situation.

Police Chief Daniel Slaughter continued, “We certainly don’t just chalk it up to self defense and move on,” he said. “There is an awful lot of work that has to occur. The crime scene is going to be investigated just like any other death or murder or homicide or as in this particular case, potentially a justified homicide.”


7 Things To Know About Florida's New Noise in Cars Law

  • #1: The 25 feet rule.

    If someone 25 feet away can hear the music you have cranked up, you could get cited.

  • #2: Quiet zones.

    This law is specific to areas near homes, churches, schools and hospitals.

  • #3: Exemptions.

    If you’re a cop, fire truck or ambulance driver, you’re off the hook.

  • #4: Even if you're moving...

    It’s considered a nonmoving violation so your insurance rates won’t go up.

  • #5: It's not just music.

    They say even cell phone conversations could count just like a car radio, tape player, or compact disc player. Wait. Tape player? What year is this!?

  • #6: Enforcement begins soon.

    Looks like some agencies are ready to enforce… Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says they’re starting July 1.

  • #7: This law was done away with years ago.

    A decade ago this law was deemed unconstitutional by the Florida Supreme Court.  Will this bring on a new lawsuit? Time will tell.
