Police: Man Shoots Cellphone Tower Worker KHBS NW Arkansas
Oh, the land I love, the land where I live. LOL.
When the man saw the crew, he believed they were trespassers and shot at them with a .22 rifle, police said.
Police said it was not clear if the man will be arrested or if charges will be filed.
These weren't people in his house. There was no threat to him. And, what's more the people were on land that they had a legal right to be on--either via ownership or easement.
But, the police don't know if they will file charges.
I would be willing to bet that the work crew and the guy who were shot are from out of town and that the shooter has lived in town for quite some time. There're some difference in how the law works in theory and how it works in practice.
