    Drive-by Shooting Prank - Shots Fired [Video]

    Hey all,

    I came across this video on YouTube and I thought it might make for an interesting discussion.

    Watching the video you will see an suv driving around and playing loud gun sounds through speakers, making it seem like a drive-by shooting. At the end of the video you see a citizen actually shoot at the pranking vehicle. He fired maybe 5 shots and it looks like he hit the ground/missed terribly.

    If he or anyone would have hit the vehicle or the people inside would it be justified?

    What are your thoughts?

    How would you have reacted? (In theory).

    Justified if I'm on your jury. Seems like one could reasonably consider themselves to be in risk of death or great bodily harm.

    One of the dumber ideas I have seen on the internet, and that's saying something.

    Ummm....Yep. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck it is probably a duck. I would have moved, drawn and returned fire. If and when they either survived and were caught they would have been charged at a minimum with Aggravated Assault. This is the section from the Arkansas Statute. It is a Class D Felony

    This is no different than dressing up and carrying a toy gun and kicking in your neighbors front door as a joke.

    Personally, I enjoy some of Roman Atwood's pranks (i.e. fart noise prank), but some of their more recent ones go way overboard. Note: Most of their pranks are performed in Columbus, OH or Cincinnati, OH.

    Edit: The last stat I heard put it at 1 in 21 adults in Ohio are licensed to carry concealed.

    100% justified IMO. Of course convincing a jury of that is going to be a different story.

    Good way to get a personal introduction to the coroner, of course you would not care then.

    I like Roman's pranks but this one is way OVERBOARD. This is one of the stupidest things I've seen and it's a good way to end up in the morgue. If I was on the jury, I'd vote not guilty/justified.

    Not saying the guy shooting was not a licensed concealed carrier but that was probably not the best place to do this

    On this plus side this helps dispel the idea that gang bangers are good shots.
