First a bit of history, via elvisinfonet.com:
Elvis harbored some bad feelings about [singer Robert Goulet] from back in the late 50s when he was in the Army. Elvis’ girl friend Anita Wood was a singer and she did shows with Goulet and Buddy Hackett.
Anita would often write Elvis in Germany, and one time Goulet added a postscript to one of them telling Elvis in a sly way that he was personally taking care of Anita. Elvis didn’t like that and he never forgot, so when he saw Goulet on TV, he shot the TV out.
And wasn’t charged. Not so lucky, California resident Mike Hernandez.
Hernandez fired a single shot from a 12 gauge shotgun through his bedroom door for unknown reasons. At the time of the gunshot, two other individuals/roommates were inside the residence in their separate bedrooms.
Then again . . .
Hernandez was determined to be on felony probation out of Fresno County with an active felony arrest warrant. Hernandez was also found to be violating his Fresno County Probation terms by living in Shasta County. During a probation search of Hernandez’s bedroom, deputies located two illegal, short-barreled (sawed off) 12 gauge shotguns, multiple rounds of various types of ammunition, and evidence consistent with a recent gunshot being fired from within the bedroom.
Moral of the story? Don’t shoot a gun inside your house unless you’re in imminent danger of death or grievous bodily harm. Or you’re Elvis.
