Having him tell police that he shot you accidentally because he thought you were “a hog”, is another.
And that is what happened to 52 year old Lisa Simmons in Flagler County, FL on Saturday night. Simmons and her boyfriend, Steve Egan, were camping out on a hunting trip when he claims he heard sounds outside the tent, he shot at what he told police was a hog in the woods. He had shot earlier at a hog that got away, but he’d heard a sound and thought the hog had returned. Not realizing Simmons had also left the tent, it turns out on a second shot struck her. She is reported in critical condition at an area hospital and no charges have been filed on Egan.
