Quick summary, this guy is going to a party with 2 girls and his brother. He said it wasn't a safe place so he decided to take his gun, as he called a Smith & Wesson 40 S&W. (He showed a photo of it and it was a S&W Sigma) Since he didn't have a CCW he was carrying it open.
They were leaving the party and he was driving since according to him the girls were drunk and he only had a couple of beers and was fine to drive. He had removed the pistol from the holster and put it on the console. It was making the girls uncomfortable and as he went to move it or clear it (it was a murky story at this point) he pulled the trigger and shot the dashboard and windshield.
He had previously paid for the windshield but the girl was suing for the dashboard. JJ didn't rule in her favor since the girl kept saying she was uncomfortable with the guy and the gun so why did she get in the car in the first place?
