“A deputy responded to a domestic disturbance on Tillman Mill Road in Elkmont at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday,” waff.com reports. “Witnesses said [Christopher] Draper, who had been drinking all day, had gotten into an altercation with his mother’s boyfriend for walking around in shared areas of the residence in boxers. He was allegedly mad that he was walking in the part of the home where Draper and his girlfriend also live.” Drinking all day. Add animus and shotgun . . .
Draper allegedly attacked the victim several times, was subdued each time then allowed to get back up. Draper then allegedly went into his bedroom with his mother, and she locked the door. She said Draper then picked up a .410 shotgun, kicked open the door and pointed the gun at the victim, stating, “I’ll kill you.”
The deputy said the mother told them that she stepped in front of the shotgun, grabbed the barrel and pointed it at the ceiling, at which time Draper fired the gun before fleeing the residence . . . The sheriff’s office said additional charges are expected, pending an interview with Draper when he is sober.
I’m wondering if the whole thing really started as an argument over boxers vs. briefs. Personally, I settled that debate with Tommy John’s boxer briefs. But I can see how the boxers vs. briefs thing would get out of control if either side of the argument was liquored-up to the eyeballs.
Yes but– introducing a shotgun into the proceedings was a particularly irresponsible move by Mr. Draper. Perhaps the time spent incarcerated in his mother’s bedroom would have been better spent investigating TJ’s no wedgie guarantee. I don’t think they have internet in jail. But if they do, hey Chris! Your IGOTD’s trophy ready when you are . . .
