Man Shot “Hunting For Bigfoot”

From The Huffington Post

Three people in Oklahoma were arrested over a bogus hunt for Bigfoot that authorities say wasted their time and put a man in the hospital with a nasty gunshot wound. Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton said, “If they had just been factual, upfront and truthful with us and explained that this was truly an accident, as strange as it might sound, we would have went ahead and investigated and probably nobody would have gone to jail. But how do you believe anything after that?” Omar Pineda, 21, was arrested after he told Rogers County deputies that he shot his friend in the back when a “barking noise” spooked him during a hunt for Bigfoot late Saturday night. The victim underwent surgery and is expected to survive. Oklahoma is not exactly known as a hotspot for Bigfoot sightings in the U.S., although more than a few encounters have been reported there over the years. – Tulsa, OK – News, Weather, Video and Sports – |
