Ride-Share Driver Gets Into Gunfight With Pimp, Saves Wife


A ride-share driver in Seattle, Washington, picked up a woman trying to escape from a pimp and got into a shootout that brought the woman safely under police custody.

Local 12 only identified the woman as HA, noting that she broke an ankle on Saturday when she jumped from a third-floor window in an attempt to escape William Burt, a pimp who forced her to do sex work.

Burt was able to recapture her, then reportedly held her at gunpoint and told her she could leave, but only after knocking out all of her teeth.

HA somehow escaped topless from the Burt’s car and ran down a six-lane highway to find help.

She eventually sat down in the middle of the highway hoping someone would come to her aid.

The Daily Beast reported that a driver pulled into a van, picked up the woman and drove off. Burt followed and began firing at the van, to which the ride-share driver fired back.

The ride-share driver managed to escape Burt during the shootout and drove into a gas station, where the woman was handed over to police.

William Burt was arrested Sunday and held on $750,000 bond.
