“Kay Ward recalls waking up late Saturday night to the sound of a bang at her bedroom window,” myfoxdfw.com reports. “When she glanced out she saw the nearby fence shaking. ‘They were trying to break in. They were trying to break in,’ she said. ‘I was terrified. I was literally shaking like a leaf.’ Husband Terry Nye said he saw someone’s head so he reached for his gun and went out the back door. ‘I could see men through the fence and I told them they needed to leave my property and leave me alone,’ he said. He then fired a shot into the ground to scare them away . . .
A neighbor heard it and called police. Nye said he chased the men around his side gate and was out front to greet police.
But soon he was handcuffed and hauled off to jail. Police charged him with discharging his weapon in a metropolitan area.
These are the words you need to know and say: “I was in fear for my life. I wish to speak to my attorney. I do not agree to any search.” Never, never, ever allow the words “warning shot” to pass your lips. “I was in fear for my life. I wish to speak to my attorney. I do not agree to any search.”
And then STFU. As much as this website loves successful DGU stories, do NOT talk to the media. Anything you say can and will be used against you in court of law.
