Woman “Fed Up” With Ghost Hunters Accused of Shooting At “Disturbance Causing” Investigators


Paranormal investigators hoping to catch a late night scare at a haunted railroad tunnel got their wish last weekend, but instead of fleeing a supernatural fright, they found themselves on the run from a pissed off neighbor packing heat.

Shortly before 11PM on Thursday, June 13, twenty-eight year old Brandi Lea Amey of Tennessee allegedly opened fire on Jessica Winstead, 20, and a car full of juveniles milling around the Sensabaugh Hollow Road train tunnel, a location known for it’s “phantom train” sightings. Luckily for the alarmed ghost hunters, Amey was only toting a BB gun and no one was hurt, aside from their vehicle, anyway.

Via the Times News:


Jessica stated that a female with blond hair (later identified as Amey) came out from the residence next to the tunnel and told them they needed to leave,” [Officer] Lipe said. “As the male was getting back into the vehicle they observed some type of firearm in (Amey’s) hand. Jessica said she saw the female cocking the firearm, and as they drove off she (Amey) fired it at them, striking the rear of the vehicle.

Amey was arrested early Friday morning, charged with five counts of aggravated assault, and was released on a $10,000 bond. When arrested, she apparently told authorities that she was tired of the disturbances caused by paranormal thrill seekers attracted to the tunnel.

Amey’s hearing is set for July 29th, where if there is a god, the the judge will give her a speech about shooting her eye out.

See, if you’re going to go ghost hunting, be SUBTLE about it, and be respectful of the area and the neighbors. If you go around screaming IMMA GOST HUNTRE and plod around like a wild bull, or yell at the top of your lungs about cold spots, then you’re going to piss the locals off. Seriously; go, be quiet, whisper, dress casually, don’t lug two million pieces of equipment, and be brief.


The last line of this article is pure GOLD!

I used to go “ghost hunting” in Sensabaugh tunnel – this very one – when I was a teenager in the 1980’s. The creek that runs through the tunnel makes for very strange echoing sounds and flickering patterns of light…. it was the perfect Scooby-Doo mystery setting!

And she would’ve gotten away with it, if hadn’t been for those meddling kids.

It doesn’t quite have the right threatening ring to it does it Dana “I’m go’n’o pop a pellet in your ass!”

It sounds more like something a nurse’d say hoping it wouln’t come down to fetching a rubber tube a funnel and a bucket of castor oil.
