Gresham, OR – Police say Roger Witter, 48, was in an AT&T store at 533 Northwest Division Street in Gresham when two men stole multiple iPhones. Witter witnessed the theft and, instead of waiting for police, he took off after the men, firing at their getaway car.

He told police he intended to “shoot out the tires,” but it is unclear where the rounds ended up, though police said he fired in a direct line with the Gresham City Hall Max station and the adjacent Park & Ride.

Not very good discretion on behalf of the CCW holder.

It’s lucky there was no serious collateral damage. That said, if he would have successfully shot out the tires, then proceeded to execute the thieves in the middle of the street I definitely wouldn’t have shed any tears.

Reminds me of a quote:

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

-Edmund Burke

That’s gonna leave a mark! He’s just lucky he got that rather than a bullet.

I bet the fact he was soaking wet only made the shock from the taser that much worse!

I’d love to know the back story on this:

Priceless… I love how the one cop has a huge grin on his face and is doing a face palm… and the other one seems to be smirking holding in laughter.

Weird looking interior, Probably ostrich leather.

Converting your gear shift knob to such a setup does look cool, and would not hinder it’s function.  Probably not a great idea though if you ever were to get pulled over, or cross the border.

To be safe, id recommend against this modification. :P
