Good Girl With a Gun: Lady Biker Violently Attacked, Remembers She’s Packin’ Heat…

A 24-year-old woman riding her motorcycle in Pierce County, Washington, came under a road rage attack from a 60-year-old man and ultimately shot and killed him to stop his assault on her.

The Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office has ruled that the woman, Aubrey Bowlin, will not face prosecution for the death.

Aubrey Bowlin, Don’t mess with her…

The road rage incident occurred in February, but Bowlin is just now publicly providing details. On August 17 she spoke to KIRO Radio about it, explaining how she looked in her mirror to see Jones driving right up on the tail-end of her motorcycle.

When she stopped, she said Jones drove up beside her and tried to hit her: “The one time I leave a little too much space for the car in front of me, he then proceeds to go onto the shoulder and try to ram me with his car on the passenger side of his car, on the left side of my bike and with my left leg, into the cars … to the right of us, which would be considered the fast lane.”

The next time she slowed down Jones tried to ram her again.

Bowlin said Jones’ wife was in the passenger seat throughout the entire ordeal, and that the wife had “a shocked expression.”

At the next stop Bowlin said Jones got out of his car and came toward her. She responded by putting down her kickstand and getting off the bike to defend herself.

She said Jones first bumped her chest, knocking her into a guardrail, then he grabbed her. She said, “He had his hands on me and I was trying to shimmy out of that, and he just wasn’t letting me go.”

She said Jones grabbed for her helmet: “I think his motive was to try to take my helmet off so that he could further hurt my head.”

Bowlin eventually ended up on the ground in the fetal position, trying to protect herself at Jones attacked.

She said she was slipping in and out of consciousness when she remembered she had a firearm in her jacket.

At that point she thought to herself, “It was me or him, and I was coming home.”

She reached in her jacket, grabbed the gun, and shot Jones. The gunshot proved fatal.

Bowlin told KIRO Radio, “I was fighting for my life, and that’s what the whole point of having a concealed weapons permit and having a firearm is — to solely defend your life, because I thought he was going to take mine.”

  1. Reblogged this on On the Patio and commented:
    Lesson 101- Don’t start something if the other party might be armed. In this case a60YO goof dies because of a road rage attack on a young lady. Sorry no sympathy here. I do feel bad for the man’s companion that had to witness it.

    1. Thanks for re-bloggin’, as always.
      I don’t know what the lady on the bike did to set him off (maybe nothing), but it seems like he had something else gnawing on him that day.
      Lesson 102- Assume the other party is armed.
      Here’s mine, developed after I watched an angry man being an asshole to older drivers.
      I pulled him over, I was armed, but didn’t want to shoot him, just tell him to calm down and show some respect for others.
      He was foaming at the mouth, crazy angry.
      After our encounter, which ended OK…no-one hurt…but not to my satisfaction as he didn’t seem to take so kindly to my advice, I came up with these “rules” to deal with “road rage.”
      1. If it’s not worth doing physical harm to another human…LET IT GO! He was a jerk, but I’m not the jerk patrol and he’d done nothing to me. You never know if the person in the car/ truck next to you has snapped and is ready and desiring to kill someone ( he may have just finished killing his entire family, you don’t know)…and doesn’t care anymore about consequences.
      2. If it’s worth it, then hurt them. Control the entire scene, where I stop, where they stop, who approaches first, who exits their vehicle first…and hurt them real bad, real fast.
      3. If it doesn’t rise to that level, which is dangerous as either party could be injured, or killed, and/ or face prison…Then LET IT GO!
      There was a story from up in Nashville about twenty years ago that I never forgot:
      A man at the red light blew his horn at the car in front of him when the light changed…The guy in front jumped out, ran back and stabbed the first guy in the throat, killed him, got back in his car and drove away. I don’t think they ever caught stabby…He’s out there somewhere, along with others who simply don’t care…So unless it’s worth it…LET IT GO.
