Gun violence: Margie Rhea Ramsey, 72, was arrested for firing her .22 caliber rifle at a car full of children that was backing into her driveway in Rogersville, Tenn., last Sunday, WBIR reports.

Oscar Scott, his wife and their five young children were returning home to Virginia after a day at Bays Mountain Park when they took the ‘scenic route’ back through Hawkins County. Scott got lost down a narrow dirt road and decided to reverse his 1999 Chevy Tahoe in Ramsey’s driveway. That’s when all hell broke loose.

Margie Rhea Ramsey started ‘hollering’ from a porch and then a bullet struck the passenger side of the vehicle. Oscar Scott told the Kingsport Times-News “she fired one shot and my wife hollered and told her we’re just turning around, and then she shot again.” “We got out of there pretty well as fast as we could. I still don’t really know what her problem was.” Luckily, no one was injured.

Margie Rhea Ramsey was booked into Hawkins County Jail on seven counts of felony reckless endangerment. She has since been released on bond. Ramsey’s preliminary hearing is set for September 23rd.

I can only repeat something Nancy Grace said during George Zimmerman’s murder trial — a gun makes a little man big and a big man little. If Margie Rhea Ramsey didn’t have a gun, I am pretty sure she would not have confronted Oscar Scott.

Carlos A. Ortiz Arrested in Connection with Ex-Patriot Aaron Hernandez Murder Case

Carlos A. Ortiz, of Bristol, Conn., has been arrested in connection with the Aaron Hernandez murder case.  Hernandez, former Patriots tight end, who grew up in Bristol, was charged on Wednesday with what prosecutors called the “orchestrated execution” of Odin Lloyd. Lloyd’s last communication was a text to his sister apprising her that he was with Aaron Hernandez, the Courant reports.

As a result, Ortiz, of Federal Street in Bristol, was charged Wednesday with being a fugitive from justice and later appeared in Superior Court in Bristol, Preleski said. Ortiz waived his right to an extradition hearing, he said.

All documents related to Ortiz’s arrest and incarceration have been sealed.

Ortiz’s original charge in Massachusetts was violation of probation, Bristol police said. They would not confirm that the arrest is related to the Hernandez investigation.

Court records indicate Ortiz has a record of larceny and criminal mischief convictions and was on probation at the time of his arrest Wednesday afternoon.

Separately, Aaron Hernandez is under investigation in connection with a earlier double homicide.
