Angie Harmon’s doggone drama: Instacart driver in the ‘dog’-house? Investi-paws-tion update!

Actress Angie Harmon accuses an Instacart driver of killing her dog and taunting her family. Let's explore the details and the ongoing investigation.

Actress Angie Harmon is in the news for accusing an Instacart driver of shooting and killing her dog, Oliver, and taunting her family about it. The incident has left Harmon and her daughters “completely traumatized & beyond devastated.” The police responded to the scene at her Charlotte, N.C. home, and Instacart has launched an investigation into the matter. Let’s take a closer look at what’s going on.

What went down?
So, on March 30, Harmon used Instacart to have her groceries delivered. When the delivery driver arrived, things took a dark turn. Harmon claimed that the driver got out of his car, dropped off the food, AND THEN shot her dog! To make matters worse, she said the driver noticed that her Ring camera was charging inside the house and took advantage of the situation, knowing he wasn’t being recorded. The police released the driver as he claimed it was all in self defense. But Harmon pointed out that he didn’t have a scratch or bite on him, and his pants weren’t even torn. According to Harmon, the driver callously admitted to the shooting in front of her and her daughters, saying, “yeah, I shot your dog. Yeah, I did.” That’s just brutal. The whole family is reeling from the loss of their beloved Oliver.

What’s the police side of the story?
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s South Division responded to the report of the dog being shot. Their investigation revealed that the delivery driver stated the dog attacked him while he was making the delivery, which led him to fire a single gunshot to defend himself. Unfortunately, the dog was fatally wounded. The CMPD clarified that no criminal charges have been filed in connection with the incident, and they are not currently pursuing any additional parties. They also mentioned that their Animal Care and Control unit was present at the scene.

What does Instacart have to say?
Instacart expressed deep sadness and disturbance over the incident, stating that they have zero tolerance for any form of violence. The shopper’s account was immediately suspended once they learned about what happened. Instacart has been in direct communication with the customer (Harmon) and is fully cooperating with the authorities during their investigation.

Case closed?
According to a police representative, the case status is closed. It seems like no further action will be taken in this matter.

Can Harmon seek legal recourse?
Yes, she can, but it might require additional investigation. Legal expert Michel Huff suggested that Harmon and her family may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the driver for intentional infliction of emotional distress and other related claims.

So, there you have it. The case of Angie Harmon’s dog being shot by an Instacart driver has stirred up quite a bit of controversy. Let’s hope that justice is served, and that Oliver’s memory can be honored in the best way possible.
