JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A judge has set a $1 million bond for a 79-year-old man charged with shooting a state trooper in the head during a traffic stop in southern Indiana.
Oscar Kays of Jeffersonville appeared in court Wednesday afternoon after being charged with attempted murder for the Tuesday night wounding of Trooper Morgenn Evans.
Police say the bullet skimmed the top of Evans' head and that he narrowly missed being killed. The trooper has been released from the hospital.
When reporters asked Kays after the court hearing what happened the night before, he replied, "Well, I think I crossed the line."
Police say Kays pulled out a gun and fired as the trooper was trying to handcuff him for possible drunken driving.
