The clerk should be charged based on this report.
One would think that the clerk would be charged without the need for the 'victim' to press charges.:blink:
The victim did not want to press charges? :confused:Quote:
COLUMBUS, Ohio — A bloody nose may have led to a shooting Thursday at a gas station on the city's west side.
The shooting occurred shortly before 11 a.m. at the Ohio Oil gas station, located near the corner of West Broad Street and South Harris Avenue, 10TV's Tino Ramos reported.
According to a witness who was inside the station, a man with a bloody nose was trying to purchase beer when a clerk demanded that he leave.
The witness said the customer then began kicking the store's front door and throwing beer cans. The clerk then took action.
"(He) went in the back room, got his gun, took it out, ran outside and shot him," said Karen Battle.
Police said the customer had exited the store when he was shot in the leg. The clerk told police that he fired the gun at the ground and the customer was hit with the bullet after it ricocheted off the ground.
The victim was transported to Mount Carmel West Hospital after the shooting. He was expected to be OK.
Police said the victim did not want to press charges against the store clerk, Ramos reported.
Ok and they walk among us...!!
I think my head is going to explode.
Ummmm, I think jail time is in order.
Over a bloody nose? What is going on inside some people's noggins?:confused:
Sounds pretty supid to me.
You can't fix stupid....
How it could play out. The clerk committed aggravated assault and aggravated battery, both felonies. He could be arrested and charged without the cooperation of the victim or without the police having witnessed it. So far, so good.
Then comes the trial. The victim refuses to testify. Unless there were other witnesses to the crime, the case would be dismissed because technically there is no victim nor anyone to testify that a crime took place. Oh well......
What a tool. Lucky that round didn't ignite a fire.
Complete and utter imbecile.
What about Illegal discharge of a firearm ,and reckless endangernment,they don't need a victim to press charges,the suspect broke the law
He would be convicted on the basis of his own statements to the police (and most people in prison - including the wrongly convicted - talked their way into their cells).
Excuse me Sir, would you like to press charges against the clerk for shooting you?. . . . . No, I will just come back later and have a talk with the clerk and explain to him why that was a bad idea!!! :rofl::rofl::rofl:
