Man Arrested For Drive-By Deer Shooting

DARBY, Fla., (UPI) —  Florida police said two men were arrested on allegations of executing a drive-by shooting of a deer, killing the animal.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said Michael McCord, 51, allegedly pulled over to the side of State Road 52, near Darby, around 10:40 p.m. Saturday when he and Charles Jones, 54, spotted a “small young deer” near the road, the Tampa Bay (Fla.) Times reported Tuesday.

Jones allegedly aimed a rifle out the window of the Ford Explorer and shot the deer, which the men allegedly left dead at the roadside.

Deputies said Jones threw the rifle out the window of the car a few miles down the road.

A deputy eventually caught up with the vehicle and arrested the men.

Jones was charged with taking wildlife on a road and released on his own recognizance. McCord was charged with willful waste of wildlife, taking wildlife on a road and discharging a firearm in public. He was released after posting $2,500 bond.
