Hunter Needs Anger Management
Hunting dispute leads to four felony charges, including attempted murder. Dennis Taylor, 64, was hunting near Effie, Minnesota on October 8th. A father and son had concerns with Taylor hunting too close to their house and told him so. Taylor took off only to return hours later and started doing doughnuts with his truck on the county road by the father and son's driveway.
The father and son went out, and Taylor got out of the truck. Taylor pulled out a gun from his holster and pointed it at the son, the gun discharged. Taylor then pointed it at the father and said "You're next." Father told the son to call 911 at about 4:40 pm.
Taylor told police that the duo had kicked his truck and then things went south from there. They were unable to find footprints, but there was dust on the driver's area. They were however able to find powder burns and a mark on the son's neck associated with the pistol.
Taylor was charged with four felonies, including attempted murder. He plead guilty to two counts of second-degree assault. He is being held at the Itasca County Jail. His sentencing hearing will be April 23rd, when it is expected the attempted murder charges will be dropped. It is expected that Taylor will be given three years jail time.
