Armed Girlfriend Saves Michigan Man From Attacker

posted on November 11, 2015

When Steve Miller of Macomb Township, Mich., was assaulted by an intoxicated neighbor over a leaf-blowing incident, he could easily have been killed. That is, until his girlfriend, Bonnie La Rose, grabbed her gun and came to his defense.

According to police, Miller was on the ground being severely beaten over the head by neighbor Jerry Thomas Ficht when La Rose grabbed her gun and came to his rescue. “I took a stance to shoot,” La Rose told the Detroit Free Press. “(Ficht) leaned his head and I told him three times I would shoot him and kill him.”

According to the sheriff’s office, Ficht will be charged with assault with intent to commit great bodily harm less than murder. After four hours of surgery, Miller is recovering in a nearby hospital.
