Florida Man stands his ground against 7 year old with Nerf gun and shoots him
Anthony Knuth is a gun owner and an alcohol drinker. He took a few shots and fell asleep. His nephew and another child were playing with nerf guns in the room where he was sleeping.
Well, someone shot the 7 year old. Anthony claims he was too drunk to remember. Which is somewhat of a shame because he won’t be able to try to apply the infamous stand your ground defense that so many people use here in Florida to surprising effect.
As reported by Fox 35 Orlando, Knuth claimed he took several shots of Southern Comfort before going to bed that night. He said he was too intoxicated to remember shooting a child with his gun. He has been charged with neglect of a child with great bodily harm and using a firearm while under the influence. His bail was set at $15,263.
