Florida - When Salvatore Miglino went to pick up his son at his former mother-in-law’s house for a court-appointed visit, he figured there would be trouble.
So he started filming secretly with his iPhone, which may have turned out to be a lifesaver. Cheryl Hepner, his 66-year-old ex mother-in-law, went ballistic and pumped three shots into him before her .22 caliber Beretta pistol jammed.
“I can’t believe you shot me!” he screams in the video. Hepner can be heard screaming and cursing on the ground, calling Miglino a “son of a b—-.” Although she aimed high – he was hit in the shoulder and ribs – Miglino still managed to tackle her to the ground.
Although (thankfully) you can’t see much of the altercation in the 1:28-minute video, it went a long way into convincing the police that Granny wasn’t in fact the one shot by her ex-son-in-law, the story she first tried to tell them.
“As evidence goes, that was a gem. That absolutely corroborated everything that Miglino had told detectives,” Broward County polices spokeswoman Dani Moschella told ABC News.
