Fearing her husband, she gave his guns to police. They jailed her for theft.

From The Washington Post authored by Katie Mettler:

“It had been a day since Courtney Taylor Irby’s husband had been arrested and accused of running her off the road, and now she was testifying that she feared for her safety.

Speaking at his June 15 bond hearing by telephone, Irby — who goes by her middle name Taylor — told a judge in Polk County, Fla., that she believed her estranged husband, 35-year-old Joseph Irby, was dangerous. The two had been separated since December, and she had filed for divorce in January, the same month the court granted her a temporary restraining order.

Now he was facing a domestic violence charge, over which Taylor Irby had been granted another temporary restraining order.

The judge released Joseph Irby on $10,000 bail — with the pretrial condition that he not use, possess or carry any weapons or ammunition.

Taylor Irby would later tell police that this is when she decided to take matters into her own hands, because she was afraid.”
