hand out the spotlight and gun to me. The driver’s first words were, “We didn’t shoot.” I again asked for the gun and spotlight and the driver just looked at me with a blank stare and then put the car into reverse. In what can only be described as a scene from a movie, the driver hit the intersecting road and spun the car around in one quick move. Even though his driving skill was impressive, it ended up being his downfall. As he tried to drive away he spun his back tires on the wet road with a lot of gravel on it. This momentary delay allowed me to close the gap to get a clear look at his license plate. After that, the driver sped away. I later found out he had entered a nearby field and turned off his headlights. After losing sight of the car, Joe and I headed to the field where we had heard the shots. Lying in the field were three dead deer — a doe and two fawns. These deer were shot with precision in the shoulder and the spine, so they would drop immediately. We gathered up the deer and had our region office dispatcher obtain the name and address from the license plate, which came back to a Justin Big. Justin’s address was not far away, so neighboring officer Darren David said he would go there and wait. During that time, I received a call from the State Police in Gettysburg that Justin’s mom heard her son’s name on the scanner and wanted to know what was going on. She was filled in on what happened and said her son would meet me at the State Police barracks to say what his involvement was in the whole matter. I arrived at the State Police barracks around 1:30 a.m. and was given the phone number for Justin’s mom. She informed me that Justin had been staying with his friend, Tom Sawyer, for the evening, and that she had just

got a phone call from Justin who said he wasn’t sure what was going on, because he had been sleeping, but would still come to the barracks. When Justin arrived it was obvious that he and his mother were already having an argument, which wouldn’t help me with my interview. Justin told me that he had been sleeping the whole time and had no idea what had happened. However, having seen Justin’s face as the driver of the car, he was out of luck with that excuse. Although I could smell the distinct odor of alcohol on his breath, he insisted that he was not drinking. After spending more time with the interview but getting nowhere, WCO Darren David performed a field sobriety test on Justin, because he had driven to the barracks. Justin failed the sobriety test. In fact, he registered more than five times the legal limit for someone only 18. At that point I handcuffed Justin and placed him under arrest, for underage drinking and driving under the influence as a minor. When the cuffs were placed on Justin, he asked where he was going and I informed him that he was going to the hospital to have his blood drawn for his official blood alcohol count results, and then be escorted to jail. Realizing the full extent of his actions, Justin began to tell me the entire story about the preceding events. He had gone to Tom Sawyer’s house earlier in the evening to spend the night before going hunting the next day. However, as the night wore on the beer at the house became too much of a temptation. They began to drink and the idea was suggested to go out and shoot a deer, and that Justin’s vehicle would be used. Tom climbed into the passenger seat and off they went. It was shortly after midnight when they spotted the deer in the field, and being that it was Justin’s rifle, he decided he would shoot first. He saw the big doe and knew if he shot her the two fawns would probably hang around. Justin dropped the doe where
