He Started a Fight with the Wrong Guy

A college wrestling star, who was fighting with his girlfriend decided to get physical with a homeowner who intervened. (They were on his property, after all.) It was a bad decision. Former Bradley County, UTC star wrestler shot dead in Whitwell fight | Times Free Press

A resident in the 12000 block of Mullens Cove Road told investigators he saw a man and woman he didn’t know fighting on his property.

When the homeowner confronted them the man, later identified as Matthew L. Keller, 33, of Chattanooga, stopped fighting with his girlfriend and attacked the homeowner.

He didn’t “confront them” unarmed, and it ended badly for the wrestler.

The woman was arrested on charges of trespass, public intoxication, etc.

Self-defense is a human-right. It might be a tragedy that this guy is dead, but it is a tragedy of his own making.
