Deputy justified in shooting bystander at rap video filming

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — A grand jury has cleared a Jackson County sheriff’s deputy who shot a bystander in the leg during an altercation, and indicted the deputy’s intended and allegedly armed target. The Mail Tribune reports 25-year-old Anthony Hales was indicted by a Jackson County grand jury Wednesday on charges of unlawful use of a weapon and menacing after he allegedly opened the door Dec. 2 to a deputy while holding an AM-15 rifle and wearing body armor. Jackson County District Attorney Beth Heckert says Deputy Trevor Waldeyer fired at Hales, but the gunshot hit a man who was trying to disarm Hales. Heckert says the gun and body armor were there because a rap music video was being filmed.
