My husband was walking our dogs at about 8:00 pm yesterday. We live in a rural area with dirt roads, cows, no streetlights, etc. where there is rarely any traffic, so he was walking down the middle of the road.
He was a few yards away from our street when he heard the door to the trailer on the corner open. A man shouted from the door, "Identify yourself! I have a gun and I'm not afraid to use it!"
My husband was very
for a moment. Like I said, he was walking down the street, not anywhere close to being on this guy's property. He shouted back, "Ummm...I'm just walking my dogs." Nutty Neighbor responded by firing his gun
The end result of all this was six Sheriff's Department cars and a helicopter. After the officers talked to my husband they headed to Nutty Neighbor's place, from which we heard a whole lot of yelling and cussing but no further gunfire.
Husband is going to try today to find out whether the guy was arrested or what. I'm so thrilled that he lives right down the street from us. Update
: My husband obtained a copy of the report and discovered that no one was arrested and the officers weren't even able to go onto the people's property. Why? Because it was very dark when the incident happened and my husband didn't see the gun. Because of that, they didn't have probable cause to go onto the property without the owners' permission - and of course the owners did not give permission.
