In a troubling incident that unfolded on the night of September 6, a South Carolina woman named Mary Elizabeth Holmes, aged 32, has found herself in legal jeopardy.
Mary Elizabeth Holmes, who is of white ethnicity, stands accused of pulling a firearm on a Black newspaper delivery driver, asserting that the driver “didn’t belong there”
The incident transpired at approximately 2:30 a.m. in a local neighborhood, as the delivery driver was in the process of distributing newspapers. During her deliveries, the driver noticed a woman, later identified as Mary Elizabeth Holmes, observing her from inside a parked vehicle.
According to an incident report issued by the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office, the situation escalated when Mary Elizabeth Holmes, seemingly on the verge of departing, approached the delivery driver, offering her assistance. In response, the driver declined Mary Elizabeth Holmes’s offer, prompting her to become increasingly apprehensive as Mary Elizabeth Holmes began trailing her. Fearing for her safety, the driver executed a U-turn on a nearby street. Shockingly, Mary Elizabeth Holmes reappeared, this time brandishing a firearm, which she allegedly aimed at the driver, as documented by The Post and Courier, a South Carolina newspaper.

Subsequently, the shaken driver contacted emergency services, seeking assistance. However, even while stopped at an intersection, Mary Elizabeth Holmes resumed her pursuit of the driver, as detailed in the incident report.
Minutes after the initial 911 call by the driver, Mary Elizabeth Holmes’s partner also dialed emergency services, expressing concerns that Mary Elizabeth Holmes was pursuing an individual believed to be involved in neighborhood stalking, as reported by FOX Carolina. Mary Elizabeth Holmes now faces legal consequences as authorities investigate the incident involving the newspaper delivery driver.
