DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio judge has found former Ohio State football star Jim Stillwagon not guilty of all charges stemming from the shooting of another driver during a suspected road rage incident a year ago.
Delaware County Common Pleas Judge Duncan Whitney on Friday dismissed three of the four remaining felonious assault counts against Stillwagon.
Stillwagon's attorney had argued his client shot at another driver in self-defense. Stillwagon was legally carrying the gun.
Police had said Stillwagon was riding a motorcycle when he got into a dispute with a pickup truck driver in September 2012. Investigators say that the confrontation spanned 14 miles and that one bullet grazed the alleged victim's head.
The Columbus Dispatch reports Whitney said prosecutors did not prove that Stillwagon ever intended to shoot the victim.
