This story is one you dont want to write because it is an ‘almost good guy/gal with a gun’ and shows how being prepared, practice and training is so important.
Deputies went to the bank, got a photo of Newell and showed it to the victim and the stepdaughter, who identified him as the suspect, the paper reported.
At a bail hearing Friday, prosecutor Kristin Timer said “the allegations, in this case, are particularly egregious,” the Sun reported.
Timer said Newell choked the 78-year-old man for about 20 seconds, according to the paper.
She also said Newell was never fazed when the stepdaughter pointed a gun at him and pulled the trigger. It turned out the gun wasn’t loaded.
