I didn't see the op say that, so it seems it was conjured up from "problems of an undisclosable nature", which in reality could be many many things. I'm sure if they suspect he's dealing or cooking (especially) there's already an investigation and the OP's unrequested assistance isn't necessary.

5th paragraph from the OP

They knocked on the door for close to 10 minutes before this guy came out. According to a neighbor who's lived here longer than I have, the guy is a meth dealer. Other people have since told me this as well.

I am a little hazy on one item. You said she would not go inside, but was hiding behind the car, yet you went to see the police after leaving your firearm on the roof of the car? I know you would not leave her with access to a weapon under those circumstances of duress.

In writing it sounds worse than it is. I didn't set the weapon down until the police were actually present. While I was talking to the officer I was maybe 15 feet from it. And with no way to keep it on my body (save for in my hands), I didn't have much alternative. Also, when I say she was behind the car, I don't mean she was crouched by the tire; I merely mean the car was blocking the guy's line of sight to her. In reality she was a good 15 or 20 feet away from it as well.
