Because a homeland security agent couldn’t tell the difference between a pellet air gun and a real high powered firearm a young Iraq war veteran and active duty soldier is in trouble with the law.
As you can see in the news video, SWAT and about every law enforcement official in the county is called in to take down this soldier.
The soldier was target practicing with his pellet air rifle on the side of his house when one of the pellets ricocheted and hit the window of a vacant house nextdoor.
In the empty house that was still under construction was a homeland security agent who was looking at buying the abandoned home. The agent called in an active shooter situation after seeing the soldier with the pellet gun.
That’s when all kinds of rumors erupted and two nearby schools were locked down. An armored vehicle, SWAT, and a massive law enforcement team showed up on scene to arrest the 25-year-old soldier who merely wanted to work on his craft. He is facing criminal charges of mischief for his actions.
KHOU has brought us this story which many are still calling a complete overreaction.
Dionne Hooks thinks authorities overreacted.
“I’m being honest: You can tell a pellet gun when you look at a pellet gun,” she said.
Her husband, an active-duty soldier, now faces criminal mischief charges and more punishment when he gets home.
“He is in the dog house for a long, long time. He sure is,” Dionne said.
