Man sentenced for threatening pregnant smoker

Metro

BELLINGHAM, Wash – A Washington man will serve 20 days in jail for threatening a pregnant woman because she was smoking.

Justin Palmer pleaded guilty last week to felony harassment for an incident last September when he called a pregnant woman “white trash” and demanded she put out her cigarette.

The woman told police he then pointed a gun at her before driving away.

Palmer admits to the argument, but denies he pulled the gun.

Two pistols were found in his truck’s center console when he was arrested.
