Jeffrey C. Barton wants an apology from Vice President Joe Biden.
The Vancouver man faces a misdemeanor charge of illegally discharging a firearm after an incident in the early morning hours of July 15. Barton said he fired a shotgun in the air to chase away three men who were apparently breaking into his vehicles.
And he said he’s in trouble with the law because he followed advice from the vice president. He was back in court Tuesday, where attorneys scheduled a trial for March 26.
After pleading not guilty on July 17 to the misdemeanor charge, 52-year-old Barton said: “I did what Joe Biden told me to do. I went outside and fired my shotgun in the air.”
