Argument starts with bike-riding lessons, ends with a neighbor pulling a shotgun
Learning to ride a bike is a rite of passage for a child. It usually doesn’t involve shotguns.
It did last week in Rosemount, though, and that has landed 61-year-old Gary Eugene Drake in trouble with the law.
According to a complaint filed May 29 in the Dakota County Attorney’s office, Drake became upset May 25 while watching a neighbor teach his 7-year-old daughter to ride her bike. Drake later told police he didn’t like the way the man was treating his daughter.
