I know what you’re thinking: we don’t do nearly enough drunk hunting stories here on BadJocks. Well, that’s about to change with this one. You see, Bobby J. Fawcett of Clark County, Ohio was out hunting with a friend when he hear something in some nearby brush and let fly with a blast from his shotgun. Unfortunately, it was NOT a squirrel (which Mr. Fawcett and friends claim they were after) but a boy hunter out on his own adventure looking for deer. Police were called and it was then that they discovered the accused had a BAC of .12% more than enough to get you arrested for DUI and probably higher than the DNR would like you to have when you’re out in the woods with a firearm.
The Clark County sheriff’s office received a call from a man who said his hunting partner shot another hunter in the head at Buck Creek State Park before 5:30 p.m. Thursday. A male hunter was found suffering from buck pellet shots from a .20 gauge shotgun to his head and back. He was transported to Miami Valley Hospital by medical helicopter.
After investigation, sheriff’s deputies identified the alleged shooter as Bobby J. Fawcett.
Fawcett was squirrel hunting with a friend when the incident happened. Fawcett told investigators he saw an object moving in some thick underbrush and fired his weapon into it, striking a man who was bow-hunting for deer. Fawcett said he and his hunting partner immediately called 911. During the investigation, deputies smelled an odor of alcohol on Fawcett and tested his blood alcohol concentration. Authorities said the test revealed a .12 BAC level, which is over the legal limit to operate a motor vehicle.

And . . . another one bites the dust.
For the second time in two years, the young man inside the PSU Nittany Lion mascot uniform has been arrested on charges related to the over comsuption of alcohol. Back in 2008, then mascot James Sheep was suspended following a DUI arrest. This season, freshman Clint “I’ll Have Another” Gyory was found passed out in the back of a pick-up truck after allegedly breaking a mirror off another vehicle, following a night of celebrating his 21st–oops, sorry make that his 20th–birthday, and blew and impressive .187% BAC. (Not enough to get him into the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings, but more than twice the legal limit.) As if JoePa didn’t have enough to worry about!
Gyory was suspended the first month or so of the season, replaced by his understudy who will no doubt start drinking heavily now that he has the burden of wearing that costume.

According to a local Indianapolis TV station, Colts punter Pat “Let’s Go for a Swim” McAfee was arrested early this morning while swimming in a canal in the Broad Ripple area of town. Considering the air temperature was about 40 degrees overnight when this incident occurred, cops believe that alcohol may have been involved. According to one report, McAfee had to be pepper-sprayed before police where able to arrest him. Another report is saying that McAfee blew a 15% BAC on a portable breath tester. That’s nearly twice the legal limit (not bad) but not nearly enough to make the Top Twenty of the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings. That report also says that the cops were called after a wet, shirtless man allegedly tried to get into a woman’s car at a stoplight at 4:45 am this morning.
We’re sure additional details (and possibly video) of the incident will emerge later in the day.
Indianapolis Metro Police confirm Colts punter Pat McAfee was arrested early Wednesday morning after officers found him allegedly swimming in a Broad Ripple canal. Dispatchers confirm police were called to the 2000 block of Broad Ripple Avenue at North College Avenue shortly before 5 a.m. for a suspicious person seen in the canal. There, they found McAfee shirtless and allegedly drunk. He was arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct and transported to an IMPD processing center.
It’s all fun and games until that cop puts that Taser to your neck, isn’t it? For University of Minnesota Duluth football captain Robert Wayne Aurich it started out earlier this month as a good time at a local sports bar when a security guard noticed him “accidentally kicked his shoe off and had a very difficult time trying to put it back on. He said Aurich had a hard time walking. He was staggering and swaying back and forth. He tripped on some more stairs and flung himself forward into a wall.”
A nearby police officer was called and they tried to escort Aurich, UMD’s former team captain, out of the bar. That’s when the fun (and near Tasering) started:
The officer escorted Aurich out of the bar about 1 a.m. Another officer saw Aurich push the officer back toward the door. The second officer said he told Aurich: “You’re under arrest. Put your hands behind your back.”
An officer handcuffed one of Aurich’s hands, but Aurich continued to push both officers, according to the police report. An officer put a Taser in Aurich’s back and told him he would be tased if he didn’t put his other hand behind his back. The football player allegedly said, “I’m a ’baller. I’ll kick your ass.’’ Aurich also allegedly said, “You’re embarrassing me.”
Another officer reported that Aurich said, “Don’t tase me.” The football player also allegedly said, “Do you think you can take me to the ground? I’ll beat you up right now.”
Aurich eventually put his right hand behind his back and was handcuffed by the two officers. However, he continued to push against the officers and use vulgar language. A third officer responded and attempted to place Aurich in a squad car. Aurich said he wouldn’t get in the car and resisted until an officer pushed him hard enough that the officer also went into the car.
For his efforts, Aurich now faces charges of charges of gross misdemeanor obstructing the legal process and disorderly conduct.
UMD football captain arrested after fight with police (Duluth News Tribune)
To be so drunk, so upset about a football game that you’d climb to the top of a church roof to make your point, and then forget while you were there? Then again, this guy was a fan of the San Francisco 49ers, so we can understand the drinking and apparent bout with mental illness. Details from the Times Herald Online:
An apparently disgruntled 49ers football fan climbed onto the roof of St. Basil the Great Catholic Church early Monday morning and was arrested afterward. Police arrested Michael Fisher, 28, of Vallejo, after reports of someone yelling and laughing about “justice” on the church roof at about 2:13 a.m., Vallejo police Lt. Abel Tenorio said.
Fisher came down from the roof on his own, following the fire department’s arrival, Tenorio said. “(Fisher) could not remember the reason (he was on the roof), he just wanted to deliver a message because the 49ers lost,” Tenorio said police officers were told when they arrived at the scene.
