Naked beau flushed from the bushes
Thursday, June 15, 2006; Posted: 7:53 a.m. EDT (11:53 GMT)

ANN ARBOR, Michigan (AP) -- A man who ran naked through his neighborhood to persuade his girlfriend to marry him got more than he bargained for when he was chased and shot at, police said.

The couple were discussing marriage early Wednesday when the woman said she wasn't sure if she was ready, according to Ann Arbor police reports.

The man responded that taking risks is an important part of life and, to prove his point, jumped out of a first-floor window and ran naked across the street.

Before he could return, he spotted a couple walking and hid in some bushes to avoid them. A 28-year-old man noticed the bushes rustling and bare feet underneath, then drew a .40-caliber handgun and ordered the naked man out, police said.

The naked suitor ran away, but the armed man gave chase and threatened to shoot, police said. The gunman fired a shot and the naked man fell to the ground, suffering minor injuries.

A resident called police, who arrested the gunman on charges of aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon. He was released following further investigation, police Sgt. Patrick Hughes told The Associated Press.

The naked man was not arrested and didn't want to pursue charges, Hughes said.

WTFO?? What did this guy do to deserve getting shot at? Why didn't the cops keep this "gunman" in the slammer?

From the above posts, it looks like since the naked guy didn't want to press charges, so they just let the "gunman" go. Does sound fishy, huh? :smt037

WOW!! This topic is at every gun site I visit. I will repeat what I said at another site. The shooter ought to have his CCW permit suspended indefinatly. It's people like that who make it hard for us law abiding citizens to get a CCW permit. :x

Well, he must have had one or else he would have been in more trouble other than just assault.

EDIT: Oooops. Just read where it says he got busted for carrying. Sorry.
