  • Episode 169 with Tiffany Johnson

    Give police very basic information. A man pulled a gun and demanded cash, my life was in danger, I had to defend myself. Then I’d assure police that I do intend to cooperate fully, but first I really need medical attention, and I need to speak to my attorney.
