Three Men Charged with Alcohol and Hunting Crimes
A night of apparent fun ended up with a trip to jail for three
Two men were stopped December 27th in Chattanooga. An affidavit
says police found a blood-covered handgun and parts of a dead deer
in their truck. The men appeared to be drunk. Wildlife officer Matt
Majors says the men and another friend then illegally hunted the
animal on property in Sale Creek.
They face a slew of crimes including DUI and all three face
hunting violations such as hunting and killing after dark and using
lights and a truck to hunt. Majors says their bad decisions put lots
of folks in danger.
"Sometimes when hunters go out and violate hunting laws it can
give all sportsmen a bad name which is what we're trying to
curtail," Majors said.
