Woman Charged with Assault over Apples

We have gotten a few phone calls from all over the state about this case.

Shawn Rose Beeler, 30, of Chandler Township, is charged with two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and two counts of possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony resulting from a September 15 incident.

According to the affidavit of probable cause filed in the case, Beeler saw a husband and wife riding ATVs picking apples on her farm.  Beeler approached the couple and told them to leave her property.

The couple moved, apparently in the belief they were no longer on the Beeler property, and continued to pick apples.  Beeler saw that they were still on her property, and got back on the ATV, this time with a gun which she allegedly fired to scare the apple pickers off the property.

The couple called 911 and officers responded to the scene, interviewed the witnesses, confiscated a handgun and arrested Beeler.

Her probable cause conference is scheduled for October 13 and the preliminary examination will be October 20.
