Teen faces reckless conduct charge

  • Follow Latest News

An Aiken teenager was arrested on Ellis Street early Saturday after he cocked a shotgun around a large group of people, according to police.

About 2 a.m. officers saw a large crowd of people gathering in the 900 block of Ellis Street, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report. As the officers were approaching the crowd, people began yelling that someone had a gun and the crowd began to disperse. Officers then drew weapons on a teenager who was holding a shotgun. The teenager cocked the shotgun and started to run but quit moving and dropped the weapon when the officers ordered him to do so.

Shawn Bernardy Doby, 17, of the 500 block of Lawana Drive in Aiken, was charged with reckless conduct. He is being held at the Richmond County jail on $6,800 bond, according to jail records.

At least he had enough sense

At least he had enough sense to stop when ordered to. If I were surrounded by a crowd of people on the 900 block of Ellis Street, I'd want a shotgun with me, too. But why do these blasted South Carolinians have to come here to stir up trouble? Keep the South Carolinians on their own side of the river, I say. Nothing good ever came out of South Carolina, anyway.

The "teenager" "cocked" a shotgun. The charge is "reckless conduct." As an informed citizens several things jump from the article like, did the officers fear for their lives? Was anyone threatened? Seems like a minor charge and the teen will get anger management classes. Can U guess why?

"As an informed citizens?" You don't qualify as even one informed citizen. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

I'm sure Justus that when a person cocks a shotgun in a public area that all there felt threatended, however I do think that the charges should be more than what they are.....

Too bad the little thug

Too bad the little thug didn't have access to a vehicle so that he could attempt to aim the vehicle at the officers and accelerate.

The worst part about living in North Augusta is that people associate us with our namesake. You know, the scum filled garbage heap across the river. Augustian, I wouldn't say much about the drivers. Most are transplants like me that just wanted out of scum central. Every time I even drive through Augusta I feel like I need a shower.
