The woman who allegedly pulled a gun on first responders following a car crash appeared in court on Wednesday.

Samantha Tyree-Vest, 25, was granted a $2,500 bond at her court hearing this morning, though it is unclear if she has posted the money yet.

Tyree-Vest is charged with driving under the influence, reckless handling of a firearm and brandishing a firearm, as well as possession of brass knuckles.

State police say she ran off the right side of Route 6 and up an embankment back in July. When firefighters arrived, they say Tyree-Vest pulled out a handgun and aimed it at them.
