NC Dem Senator Soles shoots intruder

I found "NC Senator shoots intruder" buried in my massive, massive backlog of Uncle posts that I missed over my vacation.

A North Carolina attorney representing state Sen. R.C. Soles said his client acted in self-defense when he shot an intruder at his home.

Attorney Joe Cheshire said Monday that Soles used a pistol to shoot the 22-year-old at his home and the incident was recorded by security cameras on the senator's property.

Authorities say Soles shot Kyle Blackburn Sunday night when he and another man tried to kick in the door of Soles' secluded home. Nobody has been charged.

Blackburn was listed Monday in fair condition at a South Carolina hospital.

Soles has had a series of confrontations with former law clients in the past two years. He called for help from local police at least nine times to ward off men who were charged with trespassing.

Soles is a Democrat Senator representing Brunswick, Columbus, and Pender Counties "Down East" (as they say). The shooting is just one of all sorts of incidents connected to the Senator. At first glance this would appear to be a clean shoot - we'll have to wait and see.
