Man Shot By Police Chief Due In Court

A man who was shot by his local police chief is due in court Monday, but the case may be delayed. The attorney for William Osbun says he'll try to get his case in Pitt County continued Monday.

Osbun is accused of misdemeanor intoxication and disruptive behavior.

A grand jury cleared Simpson police chief John Waters of any wrongdoing for shooting Osbun, who Waters says jumped on the hood of his cruiser and came after him.

Attorneys for Osbun say he was in a coma for a while after the shooting in October, and he has no recollection of the night he was shot.

    If he has no recollection of the night he was shot, I predict it will be a short trial. I wonder if his memory will improve once the trial begins.
