Texas Woman Gets Five Years in Prison For Shooting From Car

There is an old saying, “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.” Sierra Tarbutton, a 27 year-old Texas woman, played a stupid game of riding around in a car and shooting a firearm out of the window.  If that was not enough, a video of the event was posted on Snapchat.

It gets better; Tarbutton had had a previous run-in with the law and was on six years probation for harassing a police officer and threatening an officer’s children. She pled guilty to those charges in 2016.

From ABC 13 Eye Witness News: Woman gets 5 years in prison for firing guns on Memorial Drive and posting it to Snapchat.

HOUSTON (KTRK) — A woman who admitted to opening fire outside a moving vehicle and recording it all on Snapchat is headed to prison for her behavior.

Sierra Tarbutton was with Michael “Money Mike” Cuellar as they allegedly fired guns while riding down Memorial Drive back in September and posting the gunfire on Snapchat.

Tarbutton has been sentenced to five years in prison for her role in the stunt.

Some of the charges against Sierra Tarbutton:

  • Dangerous conduct.
  • Reckless conduct.
  • Harassing a police officer.
  • Threatening an officer’s children.
  • Retaliation.

Opinion

When I was a teenager, my dad told me, “If you cannot control yourself, the government will control you.”  Since Sierra Tarbutton was not able to control herself, the government will control her for the next five years.

Sierra Tarbutton and the driver are fortunate nobody was killed. Things would have turned out much worse if someone had been hurt or killed.
