Purse in Fla. Shooting for Auction, Then Removed

Saturday, 18 Dec 2010 06:59 AM

 

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Bidding on a purse a woman used to try to disarm the gunman at a Florida Panhandle school board meeting had reached more than $1,000 before eBay removed the listing.

Ginger Littleton sneaked up behind the gunman and used her brown faux crocodile handbag to whack his arm. Though she wasn't able to disarm the gunman, the purse became a hit, and it was briefly up for auction on eBay.

The proceeds were set to go to a charity run by Mike Jones, the district security chief who wounded the gunman before he killed himself. But eBay removed the listing Friday night because it did meet all the legal requirements for a charitable listing.

WJHG-TV anchor Joe Moore, who was running the auction for Littleton, says he's confident they'll be able to meet eBay's guidelines and get the auction back up.
