(CBS DETROIT) – A husband and wife were charged Thursday with felonious assault, a 4-year felony after a video captured a woman pulling a gun on a mother and her two daughters went viral Wednesday.

32-year-old Jillian Wuestenberg and 42-year-old Eric Wuestenberg both had handguns and concealed pistol licenses.

Eric Wuestenberg worked as a coordinator for veterans’ support services at Oakland University. OU released a statement on the incident Thursday afternoon.

“We have seen the video and we deem his behavior unacceptable. The employee has been notified that his employment has been terminated by the university.”

It incident happened Wednesday evening when Takelia Hill, a Black woman, said her 15-year-old daughter was allegedly bumped into by a White woman at Chipotle. 15-year-old Makayla Green asked the woman for an apology when she said the woman began yelling at her.

The initial encounter was not caught on video and the footage starts after the altercation moved to the Chipotle parking lot near the woman accused of bumping into Green.


The video posted on social media stated the incident happened in Auburn Hills, but on July 2, the Auburn Hills Police Department said “this did not happen in our city” and said it happened in Orion Township.

A longer version of the video was posted on YouTube. 

Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard held a news conference Thursday where he shared videos and six different 911 calls. Bouchard said the woman and her two daughters were not armed.

Thursday afternoon, Oakland County Executive David Coulter released a statement about the video.

“I am deeply disturbed by an incident last night where a woman pointed a cocked gun at another woman during an argument. This behavior is unacceptable. I wholly expect the prosecutor to bring charges that reflect the severity of the incident,” said Coulter.

      Thanks, Angeline! The full video tells a VERY different story from the news clip version.

    You don’t bring a BIG MOUTH to a gun fight & don’t try to BLOCK their CAR when they were trying to leave before she pull the gun!!!

    1. Gaston Nogues says:

      an argument is not a gun fight, are you intellectually challenged?
      seems so

  2. Watch the full video, the pregnant woman had her head down the whole time the other woman and her daughters yelled at her calling her white, ignorant, racist while blocking her way to her car door right before standing behind her car when they were trying to leave. The pregnant lady apologizes 2 times after she gets into the car, they still yelling insults at her pointing out the color of her skin while doing it…I mean, who is the racist again? I really hope this couple sue for being wrongfully arrested or false imprisonment.

    I agree that in this climate black people think it is acceptable to call out white people as racist because that don’t like what’s going on and hurling the word “white” as if it is an insult.
    Sheer rubbish.

    I agree that in this climate the black community think it is acceptable to call out white people as racist because they don’t like what’s going on in the situation and hurling the word “white” as if it is an insult.
    Sheer rubbish.

    Watch the whole Video. “Lordy I hope there are More videos” because it will Show that the Black Mother IS AT FAULT. So You want to THROW down because someone bumps into you? Seriously? How Immature. Go to Any Middle school or High School. Try to walk through the Hallways anywhere without Someone “Bumping” into you. Wow. Ok, So then you get “Bumped” into and you FOLLOW the Person out to their Car Blocking them from getting in. The Bad “White” Woman does Apologize twice while the Black Mother Shouts over her rudely and the “White” People are Racist? So to Make things worse, I believe the Mother Jumped behind the Car to stop them from leaving. Somehow this gets twisted around. Go on any of the Youtube videos posted. You will see that People are seeing through this one. This Black Mother came across Entitled and was Taunting the Couple trying to get him to “Do Something” But The Man loses his Job and they both go to jail. Having a Gun pulled on you is not the Answer, However; QUIT making both Black People here out like They were poor helpless little Victims. They went Looking for a Fight.

    White petulance is ruining this country.

  7. Deana says:

    Bad things are going to happen if the media and government does stop pushing this race against race so sad .

  8. chubb says:

    What would happen if skin colors are reversed.

  9. freetruthnow says:

    Wow, the twisted slant in this report is stunning to realize after seeing the entire video. This couple was harassed over a made-up slight by foul mouthed racists who then physically restricted the victims of this racial harassment from leaving and de-escalating the situation. Harassing white people is the new black entitlement; when white people don’t take a knee and kiss the feet of emotionally unhinged black people claiming some personal slight, then they get arrested. Black privilege on display.
