Shot by homeowner on overlooking hill while talking to a driver he had stopped for a traffic violation. http://kcal9.com/topstories/topstoriesla_story_181190913.html "ALISO VIEJO, Calif. (CBS) An Aliso Viejo man remained jailed on $1 million bail Monday for allegedly firing an arrow that pierced the calf of an Orange County sheriff's deputy. Tri Thanh Lam, 44, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of attempted murder, one day after the deputy was struck, said Jim Amormino of the Orange County Sheriff's Department. The Orange County District Attorney's Office said Lam has not been charged. He is scheduled to make his first court appearance Tuesday, a jail clerk said. The deputy had stopped a female motorist Saturday and was issuing her a warning at about 5:30 p.m. on Aliso Creek Road, between Hummingbird Lane and West Wing, Amormino said. Investigators do not believe there was any link between the traffic stop and the arrow shooting.

The tape shows the deputy removing the arrow, which fractured a bone in his leg[/b], Amormino said. The deputy let the woman motorist go..."

This guy shoots at a Cop with a BOW?? The name "Darwin" comes to mind... Helpful hint: Should you ever be shot with an arrow, DON'T pull it out if the arrowhead cannot be readily identified as a field point; trying to remove a razorhead, or other such barbed or bladed arrowhead will increase the tissue damage, and probably bleeding, also.

Oh man, I don't know why but I got a kick out of that story. Not that I think the officer getting shot is funny, (or anyone for that matter) or that I would wish it upon anyone... But the whole mental image just seems comical to me... "Another one of those drive by arrowings!" And how did they catch the guy? Did the Californians make a little known law that requires anyone to register all their bows and arrows and put them into a ballistic fingerprint database when I wasn't looking?

As it's pretty tough to sneak out of a vehicle... climb a hill unnoticed with a bow and arrow, and shoot an officer, all within the time it takes to issue a warning

Dang, the video captured the evil arrow coming from that direction? Sounds like the officer could have used a daring sidekick like the crocidile hunter guy to deal with these unpredictible critters.

As opposed to cuffing her and arresting her for assisting the archer?

du du du du dumb "When they knocked at Lam's residence in the 40 block of King Eider, he [b]opened his garage door and deputies saw a bow and arrows[/b] that matched the one that struck the deputy, Amormino said." What a mor[i]a[/i]n. I sure would like to see a picture of that "hunting" arrow. Anyone want to wager it's got a target point on it?

Sounds like attempted murder to me. This guy is gonna,(hopefully), wish the cops had killed him, rather than prison..

I saw the video. You can see the arrow enter the picture then the officer bends down and picks it up. It didn't look like he had to pull it out. From the video, I'm surprised he fractured a bone, although he did limp out of the shot.

Not if he actually was trying to kill the cop. Broadhead arrow would zip right thru a vest. Not to mention being silent. The dumbass probably wasn't expecting there to be a patrol car vid camera.

HAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAHAA! Good one! Atleast he'll be ok though. That's what happens when you turn law enforcement into HIGHWAY METER MAIDS. Notice all this stupid shit happens in Kalifornia? Sword attacks in food stores, bow attacks on highways, constitutional attacks everyday...

Its just possible it was an accident. I saw the video, if the arrow they held up was "the arrow" then it was a target point. Maybe he was shooting at targets in his yard and had a flyer. Hee Hee, flyer.

Not so fast! The Canadian gun law allows for the registration and lisencing for Crossbows... This part of the law has been passed it has just not been brought into force yet!

So the guy was just messing around with a bow and shot a deputy by accident; he didn't even know where the arrow went. Talk about bad luck. Watch your background.

I think it was a good shoot, the guy was probably in fear of his life when the deputy made furtive movements to his holstered weapon. Or he was saving the life of the motorist that was pulled over and he sensed the deputy was about to draw his gun and shoot her. Hell, why not, works for the feds and leos.

I find arrows in my yard all the time, expensive graphite ones. One of my neighbors apparently needs some real help in the accuracy department. When I reach an even 2 dozen I may go out and buy a recurve bow. I once had a call to a domestic, wifey showed up at the emergency room beat to heck, hubby showed up a little later with a compound bow and tried to zap her as she exited. Ever have to search a darkened parking lot for such a loon? Shotgun vs broadheads. We finally found him lying down in the back of a pickup with the bow ready to go, camoflage face paint and all.

Don't pull it out even if it is a field, or target tipped arrow, as this will unplug an otherwise plugged hole, & allow the free flow of blood, or other fluids, & can complicate medical help.

Suspect was released today. Insufficient evidence that he intended to shoot the Deputy. No question that he did it, just that he didnt mean too. No laws in california covering the negligent "discharge" of a compound bow. If it ewas an accident, this guy not only missed his intended target, he shot over his fence. Dumbass set his target in the direction of the major street that runs behind his house.
