KNIGHT CAUGHT TAKING SHOTS AT PEOPLE - LITERALLY: SPORTS ILLUSTRATED reports that two people have come forward about taking shots from Bobby Knight last month. Not verbal shots, but gun pellet shots.
One woman said she was hit in the foot by birdshot fired by the Texas Tech coach while he was hunting. However, Knight came over to the woman and apologized, saying it was an accident - and she believed his claim.
But another man said Knight intentionally shot at him the next day, when he yelled at the coach for hunting too close to his house. Neither day’s shots caused any injuries, nor were any charges filed.
Bobby calls the 2nd person’s allegations “ridiculous”, adding, “You haven’t heard anything from that guy for two weeks. That’s done. I got no comment on that whatsoever because that’s absolute (expletive).”
It’s not the first time Knight’s aim was off. In 1999, Knight was accused of shooting a friend in the shoulder and back with pellets while grouse hunting in Wisconsin. Claiming it was another accident, the then-Indiana coach was fined over $500 for hunting without a license.
