“The owner of the Gunsmoke gun shop who appeared on the reality show ‘American Guns’ has been arrested and indicted by a grand jury for dealing firearms without a license and tax-related charges,” denver.cbslocal.com reports, revealing the deep you-know-what in which Richard Wyatt finds himself. Specifically, a 13-count indictment (more thoroughly detailed at westword.com). Each of which carries a five-year prison term. Here’s one scam allegedly perpetrated by Mr. Wyatt [via denver.cbslocal.com]. . .
The indictment charges that Wyatt conspired with others to sell guns without a license. He is accused of changing the address of a store known as Triggers to the Gunsmoke address, but he never owned Triggers. When customers paid for guns at Wyatt’s shop they were sent to Triggers to fill out background check paperwork and pick up the guns,” according to the indictment.
Oh, and according to Fox News, he failed to report $1.1 million in income. Is there any gun-related TV show’s host who hasn’t been indicted for something? JK. A little.
