A man hitchhiking across the courntry and writing a memoir called The Kindness Of America was injured in a random drive-by shooting along a rural highway in northeastern Montana.
Well isn’t that ironic.
Yahoo is reporting that Ray Dolin, 39, of West Virginia, was shot in the arm as he approached a pickup Saturday thinkning the driver was offering him a ride.
52-year-old Lloyd Christopher Danielson III was arrested a few hours later for the crime. Authorites claim he was under the influence of drugs or alcohool and headed to North Dakota for work.
“We’re still the wonderful people in Montana we’ve always been, and we’ll get through this,” Valley County Sheriff Glen Meier said. “Things are going to happen whether.”
Dolian is expected to recover, and Daneilson has been jaile on suspicion of felony assult with a weapon and driving under the influence.
No word yet on whether Ray Dolin is changing the title of his book to The Kindness Of America (Except Those Hitchhiker Shooting Jerks That Live In Montana).
