So Much For Quiet In Small Towns

Just to prove that crime in Bell County doesn't only happen in the bigger cities, here's one from a small town.
When a rifle failed to harm a victim, Stephen Wade Gerber, 21, of Troy, turned his vehicle into a weapon. Gerber first pointed his rifle at a 44-year-old man, but the man fought back. The rifle discharged during a struggle, a Bell County Sheriff's Office news release stated.

Gerber then attempted to run down the man with his pickup truck near Farm-to-Market 1237 in Pendleton around 6 p.m. Thursday, the release stated. Pendleton is a small town about 1 mile west of Troy.

Deputies tried to stop Gerber as he drove his truck along FM 1237. He fled and almost hit two vehicles during the chase. He wrecked his vehicle near Highway 317 and ran on foot before deputies arrested him.

As if he wasn't in enough trouble already, now he's wrecked his car too.
