Lawton man shoots sanitation worker with pellet gun

LAWTON, Okla._Lawton police arrested a man for shooting a Lawton sanitation worker with a pellet gun.

Police say William Scott called to complain about trash trucks tearing things up in his neighborhood, but when police arrived at Southwest 74th Street, officers met with a nearby solid waste employee who said he was shot with a pellet gun while loading up trash.

According to the report, Scott walked toward them smelling of alcohol and loudly complaining about the trash trucks as police were speaking with the employee. Officers asked if he shot the worker, but Scott said he couldn't remember and later admitted that he was drunk. Scott’s wife told officers, “He has been drinking non-stop for three days.” Scott refused to cooperate with the officers when he was asked for his ID and threatened to shoot them before he was handcuffed.

Scott also admitted to shooting the employee saying, "It was just a pellet gun, so it won't kill anyone." Scott was booked into the Lawton City Jail on a complaint of resisting a police officer.
