Wal-Mart Deer Hunter Gets Probation

By Phil Bourjaily

Arcangelo "Angelo" Bianco, Jr. paid a total of $1,080 in fines, received six months probation, and performed 20 hours of community service for violations committed last year on opening day of Pennsylvania's buck season.

According to The Tribune-Review, Bianco was in the parking lot of the Indiana, Pa., Wal-Mart on the afternoon Nov. 26, 2012, when he spotted a deer, drove his pickup at high speed in reverse to get close to it, opened fire with a handgun and continued shooting at the deer as it crossed a highway and fell in a residential backyard. Bianco then loaded the deer into his pickup and drove away. There were eyewitnesses in the crowded parking lot and security cameras also captured footage of the incident.

Bianco was accepted into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD), a Pennsylvania program for first-time non-violent offenders. He was sentenced to probation. By entering ARD, he was able to avoid trial on charges of reckless endangerment, killing or taking big game unlawfully, failing to have a hunting license, discharging a weapon across a highway, discharging a weapon in a safety zone, and using a motor vehicle to hunt illegally.

Hey hey hey Mark-1, Not all of us are jacka$$s. Granted there's a lot but not all. I remember this. I live about an hr. from Indiana so it made the news for a couple days. I have a friend who hunts behind a Wal-Mart in our town and he shoots big deer. Must be something about them.

He should also be required to wear an engvall sign at all times.

I think he got off way too light and should not have been allowed to make the deal he did. He should been made to forfeit his vehicle, weapons, and Wal Mart privileges as well. Just kidding about the Wal Mart privileges.

What was he on? Man that makes me mad, hearing about people not hunting ethically. What kind of backwoods, hooptie place did this guy crawl out from under

As a 4th gen PA hunter I find this jaw-dropping. Both the perp and the legal system are atrocious here. How can this be deemed non-violent? With all we're up against in the public eye/media/politics it's the last thing we need if the press wanted to trot out this crime and the punishment on the public stage. Hunting license and guns should be withheld for 5 years. Shooting up a populated space? !!

This is exactly the kind of person that gives most gun owners a bad name in the public eye.
