    Dana Lee Cockerman, 48, was charged Sunday with intimidation with a dangerous weapon. He fired a crossbow at his neighbor, because he was angry about his dog's death. :surprised

    Cockerman was being held under $10,000 bond in the Johnson County jail. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.

    10 years seems like a lot, unless the guy did somethinge else previously. The article says a 9 year old was nearby, but that could mean a lot of things.

    What is of interest about this that it deserves a thread?

    I thought it was another turtle thread.

    Anyhow, if he fired it at the neighbour, why wasn't the charge 'attempted murder'?

    I was hoping it was about a rooster. So disappointed.

    Forgive me if my BS filter glitches just a tad on that.

    No really, cause then it would have been a hilarious story. 'Rooster fires crossbow at neighbor'. I would have probably sprayed my coke right out of my nose.

    Speaking of big, er, roosters, here's one you wouldn't want to cock fight with (crossbow not needed):

    There is a resort near me with ponds in the golf course and the ducks are so large the first time I saw droppings I thought a cow had gotten loose! :eek:

    Actually its as follows:

    "In York, It Is Legal For People To Shoot At A Scotsman With A Bow And Arrow Discovered Out After Sunset."

    To shoot the scottish or the the irish?

    Is it the Scotsman out after sunset, or the bow?
