Remember how every news outlet clucked their tongues about guns and violence in America when this moke claimed he was shot in a "drive-by in Montana"?
Authorities say hitchhiker shot himself.
A West Virginia man who claimed to be the victim of a drive-by shooting along a rural Montana highway while working on a memoir called “Kindness in America” has confessed to shooting himself, authorities said Friday.
Valley County sheriff’s officials said they believe 39-year-old Ray Dolin shot himself as a desperate act of self-promotion, but they offered no further details.
Dolin, of Julian, W.Va., acknowledged he concocted the tale about the random shooting after he was confronted by investigators at a Veterans Affairs hospital in Miles City where he is recovering, said Sheriff Glen Meier.
Charges were pending, and the case remains under investigation. Dolin has not been arrested, but the weapon he allegedly used to carry out the scheme has been recovered, the sheriff said.
In Montana, you're about as safe as can be. This smelled off from the start.
IS HE THE MAIG MAYOR OF JULIAN WV?.. THEN WE MIGHT HAVE A REAL STORY...
Sometimes, a drive-by will not work out according to plan, especially when it is gang related in Dover, Florida:
What about the poor job hunter that was arrested? Picture all over the place. Guess the police had to tell him, "Hey. Oops. Sucks to be you."
