Idiot Shot by Trooper

Sometimes it’s hard to just present information without commentary,
so I’m not even going to try.  Thus the headline.
See my comment at the end of the post.

(WIS) Chance Noah Etheredge, 36, has been charged with unlawful carrying of a pistol, resisting arrest, DUI, simple possession of marijuana, and an ABC Violation after being arrested following a trooper-involved shooting.

At around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, the South Carolina Department of Public Safety says a trooper was involved in a shooting in Lexington County on I-20 Eastbound near I-26 at the 64 mile marker.

The incident began after a trooper stopped a Volkswagen for failing to maintain a single lane and suspicion of DUI.

Once the vehicle was stopped, the trooper began administering field sobriety tests on the Etheredge.

Authorities say when the trooper went to place Etheredge under arrest for DUI, he began to resist and struggled with the trooper. Etheredge began to walk toward his vehicle, the trooper then gave him verbal commands and continued to try to make an arrest. The trooper deployed his taser to attempt to stop Etheredge but it wasn’t effective.

Troopers say the suspect got back into his vehicle and continued to struggle with the trooper. During the struggle, Etheredge took a handgun from his car and exited the vehicle, according to Authorities. At that time, the trooper fired his service weapon, striking Etheredge.

Etheredge was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Drunk, possibly high on weed, he fights with a trooper, gets tasered
and then pulls a gun on him!
This fool snatched the “Idiot of the Week” trophy right out of
Sen Tom Corbin’s nasty hand!
