Michigan Man in Wheelchair Fires Rifle From Balcony, Ruins Son’s Life
Contrary to what some of you may believe, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 does not give a person in a wheelchair the right to shoot a riffle off into the midnight, Michigan sky.
Earlier this week, authorities were dispatched to a West Michigan Avenue residence in Ypsilanti after receiving reports of three shots being fired from the balcony of an apartment complex.
When officers arrived, they discovered that a 70-year-old man who had recently purchased a new riffle for his 49-year-old son had decided to give him a demonstration on the balcony, firing three shots into the air.
And while the elderly man was not taken into immediate police custody, due to his health issues, authorities say they did confiscate the riffle and that the man will be charged with disarming a firearm within the city limits.
However, the man’s 49-year-old son was not that lucky. Turns out, he was wanted on multiple warrants, which landed him in the county jail.
Geez! Thanks dad!
