St. Louis Lyft driver allegedly pulled gun over mask request

MAPLEWOOD, Mo. — A Lyft driver is reportedly suspended after pulling a gun on a man who asked the driver to wear a mask.

St. Louis County Councilwoman Lisa Clancy first tweeted Monday about the driver pulling a gun on her husband on his way to the airport.

Councilwoman Clancy also tweeted, “one of your drivers just cocked a gun on my husband when he asked him to wear a mask (which is your policy).”

She also said the driver canceled the trip so there was no report of the ride.

Clancy says her husband was on his way to the airport at the time and missed his flight to New York City because the driver canceled the trip.

Tuesday, she tweeted Maplewood police are on the case and Lyft has suspended the driver.

Saint Louis Zoo wants gun activist who fought its ban to pay legal bills

ST. LOUIS (AP) — After successfully defending its weapons ban in court, the Saint Louis Zoo is now trying to force the gun-rights activist who challenged the ban to pay part of its $150,000 in legal bills.

The zoo filed a request for its request for legal fees in August, but a judge has yet to rule on the motion.

A lawyer for Jeffry Smith of Cincinnati, Ohio, who challenged the ban on guns called the motion unfair.

A St. Louis judge ruled last year that the zoo could ban guns on its property because it qualifies as a school and a gated amusement park under state law.
