Deny Sex, Face Death: Woman Pulled Out Gun And Threatened Boyfriend Who Turned Down Her Sexual Advances

A woman threatened her boyfriend with a loaded gun simply because he refused her sexual advances.

Cops arrested Michelle Smart, a South Carolina resident, after a domestic dispute quickly escalated into a dangerous situation when she pulled out a loaded gun and threatened her boyfriend with dire consequences. At the heart of the heated standoff was her “sexual advances,” which was rejected by her live-in boyfriend Ryan Rucker.

Rucker, 33, was sleeping early on Valentine’s Day when Smart, by her own admission, “attempted to make some sexual advances toward him,” according to a police report detailing the incident. The ruckus happened at 2 a.m. According to the report, Rucker informed cops that he simply pushed Smart, 30, off him.

This simple action, he alleges, prompted an heated argument during which Smart “told him she would shoot him because she has the gun.”

However, when Smart was questioned she had a different narrative that blamed her boyfriend of physical abuse post the rejection of her request for some physical intimacy. Smart told officers that after Rucker “rejected her and pushed her off of him,” he punched and kicked her multiple times. But cops noted that Smart “continually was changing her story throughout the investigation,” adding that, “For these reasons, Ms. Smart’s account became less believable.”

Though females are accorded the benefit of the doubt in such cases of domestic violence and lent a sympathetic ear, the cops as well as the judge who was hearing the case thought differently towards Smart. Cops adjudged Smart to be the “primary aggressor” and she was promptly arrested for domestic violence, when they seized a Ruger handgun and six bullets from the premises.

Rucker strongly maintains that he wasn’t the one who had instigated the quarrel which ended in a threatening standoff. Based on the evidence, the judge accepted Rucker “feared for his safety when Ms. Smart pulled the gun out and threatened to use it.”

Post her arrest, Smart spent just about eight hours in custody. Since no shots were fired and no one was injured, only a minor misdemeanor charge was filed against her. Ms. Smart had to post a trivial bail to secure her freedom by Sunday afternoon.

Relationships can often get quite strained owing to differences and misunderstanding, but threatening to shoot the partner for not having sex, can certainly be classified as strange. The fact that it was the woman, who was turned down by a man, makes the cases even stranger.
