Deer Hunters Ticketed After Rural Arbela House Shot

A rural Scotland County family had an unwanted house guest, a bullet, on Sunday afternoon. The Scotland County Sheriff’s Department reported that David R. Smith residence north of Arbela was struck by a single round, believed to have been fired by a hunting rifle.

The incident occurred at approximately 1:28 p.m. on Sunday, November 11th, the second afternoon of the firearms deer hunting season.

A Scotland County sheriff’s deputy responded to the scene and further investigation of the area led to the detention of two individuals on suspicion of unlawful use of a firearm, for handling hunting weapons while intoxicated.

Two 43-year-old men from High Ridge where questioned in the incident.

Missouri Department of Conservation Agent Gary Miller issued three citations to members of the hunting party following the investigation. Timothy Clark and Timothy Clark, Jr. of High Ridge, MO, were ticketed for the taking wildlife with the aid of a motor vehicle. A citation was also issued for taking a deer without a tag.
