Lincoln: Wheel-chair bound man tries to settle argument with crossbow

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 24, 2008

Sometimes you can’t make this stuff up folks! Carlos Lupercio of Lincoln, NE got his 15 seconds of fame the last couple of days as news services all over the U.S. picked up the story. It seems Carlos, 49, and wheel-chair bound got into an argument with a 25 yr. old about the breed of the younger man’s dog on the sidewalk.

The owner said the dog was a pit bull, but Lupercio said it was a lab. Apparently, this pissed off Carlos so bad that he went and got his crossbow pistol to settle the argument. After 20 min. (you can imagine, it taking that long by wheel chair…remember the Tim Conway little old man skit?), he returns to settle the score.

The younger man apparently thought it was time to apologize and extended his hand. That’s when Carlos fired from about 2-3 ft., missed him and hit a tree.

Lupercio was arrested and jailed on suspicion of terroristic threats, use of a weapon to commit a felony, discharging a weapon within city limits, resisting arrest, failure to comply, marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police say alcohol may have been a factor in the incident. Do you think?

NEOC Asks HUD For OK Before They Beat Bruning Up In Court!

Posted by nebraskaobserver on May 20, 2008

Omaha World-Herald – Published Saturday May 17, 2008

The NEOC submitted an agreement between the state anti-discrimination agency and Bruning on Friday but was unsure that it would satisfy the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. They won’t call in their “big-gun”, Lincoln attorney, Kathleen Neary who volunteered to help the agency in its dispute with Bruning. I’m sure Jon Bruning lost a lot of sleep over the weekend about this!….Just let the Feds do it all! Other states do……story
