Woman hands husband's guns over to police, gets arrested for theft

Following a divorce hearing in court on June 14, Courtney Irby's soon-to-be ex-husband, Joseph, rammed her vehicle and ultimately drove her off the road.

While trying to leave the courthouse, Irby's vehicle was allegedly rear-ended by her husband, who was attempting to run her off the road while she was on the phone with police.

She was charged last week with armed burglary of a dwelling and grand theft of a firearm.

State Rep. Anna Eskamani tweeted that her arrest was "ridiculous".

Though they didn't yet say what led to the shooting, "she appears to have acted alone", Port St. Lucie Sgt. Det.

According to the Lakeland Ledger, Irby went to her husband's apartment to collect his guns after he had been jailed for hitting her vehicle with his auto and trying to drive her off the road.

The Bartow Police Department arrested Joseph Irby on June 14 on charges of domestic violence-aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony.

An arrest affidavit revealed the couple had finished a divorce hearing on June 14 when they got into an argument.

Police said Torres shot and killed her stepfather, believed to be in his early 50s, as well as her own 8-year-old daughter.

The lawmaker said public officials should be creating an environment where victims of abuse can ask for help.

She went to the Lakeland Police Department on Friday June 15 to turn over the firearms, according to WMKG-TV.

Speaking at his June 15 bond hearing by telephone, Irby - who goes by her middle name - told a judge in Polk County, Florida, that she believed her estranged husband, 35-year-old Joseph Irby, was unsafe. She is hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, police said. She said she has been in communication with Irby's friends and hopes to set up a meeting with the woman soon.

Both Taylor and Joseph will return to court in mid-July for their arraignments. She was actively protecting herself and her family from an estranged husband who had not turned over his firearms to law enforcement, and was arrested for it.
