Off-duty Kansas City officer who thwarted woman with gun at DMV awarded medal

BY DAVE D’MARKO
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — He was off duty and in flip flops, but one KC police officer’s quick actions likely saved lives.

Kansas City Police Chief Richard Smith presented Officer John King a Distinguished Service Medal on Tuesday for stopping a woman who fired a shot at a Department of Motor Vehicles office in the Northland.

The incident occurred in July while King was off-duty with his wife and baby.

“As we are pulling up, we see everyone sprinting out of the back, and we’re like that’s not normal,” King said.

King had on shorts, a t-shirt and flip flops, but he knew he had to try to help.

“I didn’t know what was going on, but I knew I didn’t want them to be close enough to find out what it was.”

He’d learn from Tom Hutsler, a customer who had been inside the DMV, that the scare involved an upset woman.

“She was cussing at the staff and she was upset about the wait time,” Hutsler told FOX4 shortly after the incident.

Despite her claims, it was a matter of national security the woman later identified as Vanessa Richey was told she’d have to wait. She knocked a printer off the counter and allegedly told an employee she was going to get a gun and stormed out of the office.

“He’s yelling, ‘You need to get out of here. There’s a lady with a gun. She just fired shots,'” King said of his first interaction with Hutsler.

Richey had returned to her car. King called police dispatch and requested police backup.

But then things changed quickly for the off-duty officer in his flip flops when she exited her vehicle with her purse. He drew his firearm and identified himself as a police officer. He commanded the woman to put the purse down and get on the ground, but she refused and continued to head back to the DMV.

King and Hutsler combined to tackle the woman and hold her down until more police arrived.

Two tagged and bagged, one incarcerated, and one in the wind today, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes. No bad at all.

A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government. — George Washington

    Ahhhh, what a morning. A very good FGS score and a drop dead gorgeous example of the designs of the Saintly John Moses Browning (Howitzer be his name). More proof that AW1Ed loves us and wants us to be happy.

    Particularly “liked” the homeowner offing the dirtbag with the dirtbags own weapon.

    Drinking coffee, listening to J.J. Cale and reading the score. Life is good.

    Two in the bag is great.
    The part about the Grand Jury part is why you need to keep an attorney on speed dial on your phone.
    I’ve been with Texas Law Shield and their emergency phone # is listed as AAA Gun Lawyer on my phone.
    It’s well worth the $100.00 a year just for the security feeling I get with them.
    As long as it was a good shoot, you’re covered.
    Always say that you were worried for your life, scared shitless and that you feel like your heart is pounding so you need an ambulance.
    Much easier to talk to a cop in a hospital than handcuffed to a table at a cop shop….

      I agree completely
      Anyone who carries a gun should have carry insurance
      I pay $300 /year for USCCA “insurance”
      (Not actually an insurance product, rather a pre paid legal fee)
      Pays for a lawyer at the first interview with the police, at the stand your ground hearing, and all the way through trial and even appeal.
      Because I don’t have $15,000 handy for the retainer, or $350,000 for the legal defense.
      And a $350,000 fence is way better than the defence I would get from a public defender
