Self-defense works. Deputies: Man Shoots Other Man In Self-Defense After Confrontation At Sutter County Motel.

A guy was choking his girlfriend at a hotel and in general being a complete idiot. A guy staying at the hotel, went to his room and retrieved a firearm before confronting the idiot.

The man told Gonzales he needed to stop because there were children in the area. However, this confrontation led to Gonzales pulling out his own weapon and opening fire. The other man shot back, hitting Gonzales in the leg.

He was taken to a local hospital and then to county lockup, where he was booked on several charges including being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The girlfriend took off when cops arrived leaving her five kids (mother of the year material? NOT!) for an “extended period.” She was arrested on several charges including child endangerment.
