Whoops: Drunk Florida Biker Shoots At Trash Can On Top Of A Guy’s Head – Misses Can, Kills Guy (VIDEO)

Billy Lee McDaniel was at the Rock Harley Saloon in Land of Lakes, Florida, on March 2, 2015. He was there with a gathering of members of the Southern Sons Motorcycle Club, with hopes of being initiated into the club.

According to WFTS in Tampa Bay, the Southern Sons members were hanging around outside the saloon and drinking in the bar’s back parking lot.

A some point a trash can was placed on McDaniel’s head. Club members initially tried to throw cups and bottles into the can, but apparently that got boring.

That’s when Jeffrey Camarda decided it would be a good idea to see if he could use his gun to shoot the trash can off McDaniel’s head instead.

He aimed, fired and missed the trash can. The bullet struck the 43-year-old McDaniel’s in the head, instead. Emergency workers transported McDaniel’s to a local hospital, but he died a few hours later.

Camarda, who fled the scene before the police arrived, was arrested on Tuesday. He was charged with manslaughter and is currently being held on $250,000 bond.

Here’s more on the story from WFTS in Tampa Bay.

Camarda certainly isn’t the first drunk moron who thought it would be a good idea ┬áto pull out a gun and shoot at something while intoxicated. Florida laws on guns in places that serve alcohol are sketchy, at best. While it’s still illegal to carry a gun into a bar in Florida, it’s not illegal to take a gun into a place that serves alcohol – such as a business described as a restaurant/bar.

The Rock Harley Saloon, which describes itself on Facebook as a bar, apparently also raffles off guns. This event flier, advertising a shotgun raffle, was posted to Rock Harley Saloon’s Facebook page on February 22, less than two weeks before McDaniel’s death.

Considering that a man was just shot and killed on their premises, it seems like holding a “shot gun raffle” a couple of weeks from now might not be the best idea.

Let’s hope they reconsider.
