More Celebrity Gun Crime News! Starring Billy Joe Shaver

Back in 2007, country music legend Billy Joe Shaver shot and wounded one Billy Coker outside Papa Joes’s bar near Lorena, Texas. Shaver claimed the shooting was self-defense. In April, a jury acquitted the 70-year-old country artist of aggravated assault. This week, the court addressed posession charges related to Shaver’s .22-caliber pistol. After Shaver pleaded no contest, the judge fined him $1,000 and told him to surrender the damn gun (or words to that effect).
