Franklin County teen shot while TP'ing principal's yard

Posted: Updated:

FRANKLIN COUNTY, TN (Times Free Press) -- An Estill Springs, Tenn., man is free on a $125,000 bond after firing a shotgun at teens who were rolling their principal's yard with toilet paper.

One of the teens, a 15-year-old boy, was hit by shotgun pellets.

Franklin County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Chris Guess said suspect Dale Bryant Farris, 65, fired at least two shots, with pellets striking the teenager in the right foot, inner left knee, right palm, right thigh and right side of his torso above the waistline.

"He got peppered pretty good," Guess said of the teen's injuries. "The problem is they were not on his [Farris'] property and they were not doing anything to his property."
