The Lawrenceburg man charged with hunting under the influence and wanton endangerment allegedly fired a shot that struck retired state Fish and Wildlife officer Rex Burkhead while dove hunting last September, according to documents on file in Anderson District Court.
David Gaines, 44, of 1040 Lakeshore Drive is scheduled to stand trial on those charges March 11.
In a statement on file in the courthouse, Burkhead claims he and several others were hunting doves when Gaines “stood up, aimed his gun directly at us and fired twice.”
