A 77-year-old Condon woman faces a felony charge after allegedly pointing a handgun at two people because she was upset that they drove on the road past her house.

At an initial court appearance Monday, Acting Justice of the Peace David Steele allowed Rosemary Lynell Pierce to be released on her own recognizance, in part because she had no criminal history.

Sheriff’s deputies were called to Kauffman Road north of Condon on Friday after an argument over the use of the road that ended when Pierce drew a gun, according to a court affidavit.

A man who lived on the road told a deputy his friends were coming to his house to pick up eggs, but were stopped because the Pierces' car was blocking the road. One of the friends said Pierce initially moved the car, but moved it back when they were leaving. Pierce’s husband allegedly ran behind a nearby tree when the friends stopped.

According to the affidavit, the friend told the deputy that Pierce herself pulled a pistol from a holster and pointed it at them, yelling at them to stop driving on the road, before eventually moving her car.

When the deputy interviewed her, Pierce said she had only pointed the pistol at the ground, according to the court documents.
