WESH.com DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. —A 21-year-old woman from Georgia will face charges after police in Daytona Beach said she fired at least 18 rounds in her hotel room. The alleged incident happened Wednesday in the heart of bike week and spring break festivities. Police said Heather Beaver was taken to the hospital, combative all the way, after a two-hour standoff with police at the Sun and Surf Motel on A1A. Police said she got into a fight with her boyfriend at a biker bar and returned to the motel alone, grabbing his gun, threatened suicide and then fired the gun. Officials said some of the shots were fired in the direction of responding officers. “You had a young lady who clearly was out of control with probably over 30 rounds of ammunition in that room, with walls that are paper thin, with people on the beach, people on the street. I mean she could have come out and charged anybody,” said Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood. Police used tear gas to subdue Beaver and she finally threw down the gun and surrendered. “She could have, before we got here, basically wiped out 10 to 15 people,” said Chitwood. “She’s got 30 rounds and clearly not in the right frame of mind here.” The 21-year-old was evaluated for mental health issues, then booked into jail. She is charged with four counts of attempted first-degree murder with a firearm, two counts of aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony and carrying a concealed firearm. Beaver is being held without bond.
This naughty little Beaver was angry at her boyfriend and thought it would be a good idea to fire 18 rounds inside a motel, putting every patron in the motel and the responding officers at risk. She’s a bad, bad little Beaver. How do you punish a bad little Beaver? You really stick it to that Beaver, if it just gets off with a slap on the Beaver, it will never learn its lesson. Beavers need tough love.
“Beaver is being held without bond” is my favorite line from a news story yet in 2013.
