Reeves’ attorney, Richard Escobar, argued that his client should be released because of his deep ties to the community.
Escobar said that he found the Sheriff’s Office probable cause document to be “quite weak” and that Reeves was defending himself from Oulson.
“The alleged victim attacked him,” Escobar said, adding that Oulson threw something, possibly popcorn, at Reeves. “At that point in time he has every right to defend himself.”
The attorney for Curtis Reeves, the guy charged with shooting a man he yelled at for texting during a movie, should probably stop talking. Popcorn is not a dangerous weapon worth shooting someone over (via NY Post)
