He read into the law for the state he was in (Michigan) and found out that it was not a felony to assault a person with food items. So he loaded a shotshell with popcorn kernels and did the deed. He swears the guy would've been dead if he'd hit a cou[ple of inches one way or another. The jury read the statutes a little differently then the perp. He ended up doing a couple of years where he earned the nickname "Orville Redenbacker".
If only he had been a fascist pig with a badge, then he would have gotten away with it. Heck, the other traitors would probably have promoted him.
