This may not be the full story.
A woman was arrested in Clifton, Colorado, last week after pointing a rifle at an 11 year-old boy who was practising clarinet in the yard.
The woman was drunk; that much is uncontested. The rifle, it is reported, may have been unloaded.
The boy was playing outside because there was a baby asleep in his grandma’s house and he had to do his homework.
But what got the neighbor so mad that she grabbed a gun and ran outside yelling ‘fire in the hole’? According to one news report, the boy was holding the instrument upside down.
Cheryl Ann Pifer, 60, was released on $5,000 surety.
