John McKennon Wimberley says he agreed to give a highly-intoxicated hitchhiker a ride, but soon got into an altercation with the freeloader. When he pulled over to throw the man out, Wimberley’s dad, who was following along in another vehicle, got involved in the skirmish, leading the hitchhiker to grab a case of brewskis and strike his dad with the case. Rather than hogtie the unidentified man, Wimberley, a professional bull rider, pulled out a .22 and shot him in the leg, inflicting a minor wound, but and racking up a felony assault charge.
