Redneck Dad Shoots Son: Ashamed Of His Singing At Karaoke Hoedown

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A California man charged with shooting his son over a round of country music karaoke has been ordered to stand trial.

Shasta County Superior Court Judge Anthony Anderson ordered William Oller Sr., 70, to stand trial on attempted murder and assault charges during his preliminary hearing Tuesday, The Record Searchlight, Reading, reported Thursday.

Oller Sr. allegedly retrieved a semiautomatic handgun from his pickup truck and shot his son in the arm during the struggle for the gun. Oller Sr. also suffered a gunshot wound to the leg during the struggle.


Redneck senior and junior argued because the father didn`t approve of his son`s karaoke singing. The outraged older man retrieved a handgun from his pickup truck, and the two struggled over the gun and both ended up getting shot.

This incident has every ingredient necessary for a hit country song: A pick-up truck, a gun, singing, and plenty of beer flowing.

Ollie Sr. is 70-freaking-years-old, he should learn to chill out; I hope his son plays the song they were arguing over at his funeral.

If the jailbirds learn what song set off the argument, they will serenade the old fool every day with that cursed song.
