The Fairfax County police stopped Robert on his motorcycle a few blocks away from the 7-11. Fortunately for Robert, the police were very professional and handled the stop without putting Robert’s life in danger by pointing guns at him.
(It helped that Robert carefully complied with all orders.)
Robert’s alleged assailant (for lack of a better word) spent the last 2-1/2 months in jail awaiting his court date, which happened yesterday. The defendant was found not guilty because the Court felt that the police did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he was the one that made the swatting call, even though he had stated his name on the 9-1-1 recording and had made the call using his girlfriend’s cell phone.
Hopefully the ordeal, nonetheless, will discourage such behavior in the future, which could easily lead to an innocent gun owner being killed.
