Cable Guy Arrested in Sniper Attacks
NBC4LA ^ | June 25, 2010 | Yvonne Beltzer and Mary Parks

Posted on 06/25/2010 3:09:34 PM PDT by La Enchiladita

CHP investigators have arrested a 40-year-old cable TV installer in connection to the series of sniper attacks on Inland Empire Freeways. For weeks now, someone has been shooting out the rear windows of SUVs on the freeway.

On Thursday, CHP investigators said they caught the suspect red-handed as he shot at an Escalade as he drove along Interstate 15 at the 38 in Wrightwood. The suspect has been identified as William Frye of Hesperia.

His gray Toyota Tundra has been impounded along with several weapons.

The seven-week shooting spree damaged more than 70 vehicles.

Frye now faces up to 70 counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

What, no middle name?? What's with that? Shouldn't it be at least William Wayne Frye? What sort of rifle (assuming it was a rifle)? What calibre? More details!

(Not you Enchiladita, I realize that you're just the poster). On FR however, it seems that the posters catch the flak as if they wrote the bloomin' thing, or they're in agreement with the artcle, shootin' the messenger is what it's all about...

His gray Toyota Tundra, with an 'Obama/Biden 2008' sticker on the rear bumper, has been impounded along with several weapons.

Fixed it.

Why is everyone who shoots a scoped rifle called a “sniper” when portrayed in the news? He was just a guy with a rifle who wasn't a very good shot. Calling him a sniper just gives him accolades he doesn't deserve and takes them away from people who do deserve them.

>>> He was just a guy with a rifle who wasn’t a very good shot. Calling him a sniper just gives him accolades he doesn’t deserve

I don’t know if that criticism applies in this case. Seventy attacks, seventy vehicles hit, seventy windows shot out, and nobody hurt. With that many attacks, somebody just popping away would surely have hurt someone. Credit where credit is due, this appears to be good precise shooting.

Probably one of those 45mm fully automatic sawed-off copkiller assault rifles like the racists carry at their Tea Parties. < /journalism major>

Probably not. I'm sure the prisons have dish technology installed by now.

Spent some time at the shallow end of the gene pool(DU) while FR was down. One of them was using the word "teahadist" to describe all the violent tea-partiers.

BB gun. Could have been hundreds of "attacks."

I called him a bad shot because I was under the assumption that he was aiming at the driver. In wich case he never learned how to lead a shot. If he was aiming for the rear window and hit it 70 out of 70 times then yeah, that’s pretty good.

He was shooting a BB gun, so the pellet would have expended its energy breaking the window, leaving little to harm somebody inside the car. Any misses would have left a nick on the car body or just landed on the roadway.

That said, they should give him a year for each incident, meaning he should never get out.

Buddy B was kind enough to do the research. This fellow was using a BB gun. Now, this is still a lot of malicious damage, and he needs to go to jail, but he is hardly a “sniper”. You would think the reporter would have found this important.

Thanks, Buddy B.
