Default Man kicks in door, homeowner defends himself

South Carolina man kicked in door, shot by homeowner, sheriff says


Published March 10, 2013

Associated Press




LANDRUM, S.C. – A South Carolina man is recovering after sheriff's deputies say he kicked in a Landrum home's door, assaulted his wife, and then was shot when he tried to get his hands on the home's owner.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office says Dakota Hester is in critical condition Saturday after being shot multiple times after a Friday night rampage.

Deputies say Hester was shot by Jonathan Wofford after he called 911 to report someone was trying to break into his home, retreated to his bedroom, locked the door, and saw Hester kick in that door too.

Deputies say before trying to attack Wofford, the raging Hester grabbed his wife Amy Hester around the neck and pushed her against a wall. Amy Hester was inside the home when Dakota Hester burst in.

Terribly written article (a NASCAR fan?) but I love that the homeowner locked the attacker's smacked wife out of the bedroom to which he retreated! LOL

Damn shame the home invader is in such bad shape. He was shot multiple times too. Thank goodness it sounds like the home owner didn't have a high-capacity magazine...

Trying to figure this out...
Was the attacker's wife at the house with the homeowner? Or did he bring his wife to another man's horse to beat her? Or am I reading this entirely wrong?

Mrs. Hester was in Mr. Wolford's home when Mr. Hester showed up, kicked in the door, smacked Mrs. Hester, and tried to kick in the bedroom door going after Mr. Wolford- and was shot by Mr. Wolford.

WHY she was in a neighbor's home- I have no idea. Nor do you.

We do not know the ages of the folks involved, what may have happened prior to, etc. But whatever your motivation, kicking in someone else's door= bad idea.

That's what passes for journalism today? That person needs to go back to English 101. The editor needs to be fired.

If Wofford was bangin' Hester's wife, Hester should have just taken advantage of his cue to free himself of the dingbat in divorce court. Then Wofford could have her. There's an old saying, "Any man who steals another man's wife gets what he deserves". He gets an unfaithful ho.

It's possible he was smacking her around first so she fled to the neighbor.

True. Wouldn't it be nice if the "journalists" would try to gather a few facts before cranking out what is supposed to be a sensational "story".
