A Tampa Bay Man Was Fired Up After Watching Michelle Obama’s Speech
An outraged and bitter Tampa Bay man clinging to his gun and religion went on a shooting rampage last night at his trailer park after the Michelle Obama speech.
Pasco man shootin’ mad after Obama speech, authorities say
The man stood outside his RV, yelling and shooting a gun into the air. When Pasco sheriff’s deputies confronted him, he ran inside and wouldn’t come out.
That started a six-hour standoff late Monday night between the man, whose name was not released, and authorities, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Kevin Doll said.
SWAT team units arrived later and surrounded the RV, Doll said. As the situation entered the early hours of this morning, SWAT team members fired riot gas into the man’s home. He still wouldn’t come out, Doll said.
Finally, about 5 a.m., he exited his RV and was taken into custody. The cause of his displeasure, according to Doll, was Michelle Obama’s speech last night at the Democratic National Convention.
