Chase, 74, told police that a black pick-up truck cut him off on Feb. 9 and he thought the truck might have hit his car, so he flashed his lights until the driver pulled over. He realized there was no damage, but still went up to the driver...

Henderson says at about that time, an off-duty Austin Police Department officer pulled up and asked if everything was all right. Henderson says before he knew it, the man who’d run his family off of the road had pulled a gun and began shooting...

    Ballistic evidence and autopsy results show Ronald Gasser, the man authorities say admitted to fatally shooting Joe McKnight, did not fire on the former NFL player while standing over him, Jefferson Parish authorities said. "The wounds are not consistent with being shot from above while on the ground," Jefferson Parish Coroner Dr. Gerry Cvitanovich said, as he discussed McKnight's autopsy during a press conference Friday (Dec. 2). The information contradicts a witness account given at the scene of McKnight's death Thursday at a Terrytown intersection. The witness had said she saw Gasser shoot McKnight twice, then stand on top of...

  • Judge sentences George Zimmerman shooter to 20 years in prison

    SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. The man convicted of trying to kill George Zimmerman was sentenced to 20 years in prison by a judge Monday, despite arguments from his mother and wife that his trial was unfair. Lisa Apperson, Matthew Apperson's wife, complained that the media painted her husband as a monster. She also accused many witnesses of lying during her husband's trial, saying it was "disturbing" to see the "amount of perjury." Zimmerman told the court that jurors would see a different picture of Matthew Apperson, "if you were to ask his neighbors, if you were to ask the pool man."...

    Maybe don't tailgate a moose the next time you see one. When these two snow mobilers ran into one, the moose had a little something to say about their tailing too close. These two managed to get out with minimal damage, but it was a good thing at least one of them was carrying a gun to warn the creature off. Nobody got seriously hurt this time, but it certainly says something about packing heat in the wilderness. See the video here.

    Deer oh deer, looks like Bambi has a temper. After accidentally hitting a deer with her car, Ellen Sager got a taste of this buck’s own road rage. The deer managed to fling the driver’s side door wide open and attacked Sager with its hooves. Ellen managed to get away with a minor knee injury, but the likely very confused deer died of its impact injuries some time later. See the video here.
