Texas RO Who Used Gun During Repo Gets Wrist Slap

A Killeen woman who admitted to pulling a firearm on a tow truck driver who was repossessing her vehicle last year was sentenced last week to 90 days in jail.

Sharell Lashone Walker, 30, already had pleaded guilty on Oct. 6, to a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. On Friday in the 264th Judicial District Court, Judge Paul LePak decided to place Walker on a period of four years of deferred adjudication probation. As conditions of probation, Walker was ordered to spend 90 days in the Bell County Jail, which she already has served, and to write a letter of apology, according to Bell County court records.

Walker was indicted on Feb. 8.

Killeen police on Sept. 12, 2022, were dispatched to a residence in the city after a 911 caller reported that a woman was pointing a gun at them while they were repossessing a vehicle, according to an arrest affidavit.

“Officers arrived and spoke with (a man) who stated that while he was repossessing a vehicle, a female had pointed a gun in his face,” police said. “(The man) also stated that his tow truck was equipped with cameras that would capture the interaction. Also on scene was the 911 caller…who had been assisting (the man) in the repossession of the vehicle. (The caller) confirmed that the female had pulled up in another vehicle, blocked the tow truck in, gotten out of the vehicle and then pointed a gun at (the man), demanding he stop the tow.”

Police spoke with Walker, who was at the scene. She admitted to confronting the men but denied having a firearm.

The victim later provided police with the videos from the tow truck.

Although the video did not have audio, “the cameras showed a vehicle pull up in front of the tow truck and a female get out of the passenger seat and point a handgun at (the driver),” according to the affidavit. “The female can be seen wearing the exact same outfit as what Walker was wearing when officers spoke with (her) after the assault. During the altercation, Walker pulled back the slide on the firearm and then pointed it back at (the man).”
