You normally don't take your money back

SALEM, Ore. (AP) - November 9, 2011

For Meghan Fleming it's robbery.

The Salem, Oregon, woman has pleaded guilty to third-degree robbery.

She faces two years' probation when she is sentenced in January.

Her lawyer says the 26-year-old gave $5 to an aggressive beggar, then returned with a pellet gun to demand her money back.

The lawyer tells a local paper, Fleming's behavior could also be explained by a change in her medication.
