23 year old Mark Hoffman from Wisconsin got GOT:
Police say they arrested a 23-year-old Somerset man after he was spotted openly carrying two firearms within 1,000 feet of Somerset Middle School.

When police questioned the man about his intentions, the man refused to give them any information, insisted that he was within his rights and refused to identify himself, police said.
Fair enough. I’m not a fan of the whole “fishing for info” thing if he truly didn’t HAVE to give them anything. That said… if he was willing to cooperate he MAY not have been arrested for obstructing an officer and disorderly conduct. Definitely a slippery slope though.
The original location reported was within 1,000 feet of the school where weapons are not permitted unless the person carrying the weapon falls under an exception made in the statute, but the man made it impossible to determine if he fell under an exception, according to police.
According to the article the actual arrest was made at Oak Street and Sunrise Dr which google maps shows to be a 10 minute walk. Where the heck was he coming from? I hope to god he wasn’t stupid enough to walk down Spartan Drive considering there are three schools right along that road. My guess is he lives in that cluster of houses across from the school. Is that one of the “exceptions made in the statue”… if you LIVE within XXXX ft. those laws don’t apply? I’m sure one of you guys knows.
It’s so crucial to troll smarter, not harder. At the very least he should have had his laser range finder out, and lase’d the school to make sure he was 1001.5 ft away from it… all while he had several video cameras recording and GPS tracking and logging his position. THAT’S HOW YOU TROLL SMARTER.
I may or may not have went to a Jack Johnson concert really close to there at Apple River in Somerset WI with my sister about a decade ago. *shifty eyes*
