On this day in 1999, Bobby Knight shot one of his friends while hunting. The pair were hunting grouse in Wisconsin when Knight shot his friend Thomas Mikunda. Knight then coerced Mikunda into not reporting the accident. But the story eventually came out and Knight was cited for failing to report an accident, and for hunting without a license.
Two years later Mikunda sued Knight, claiming that the shot was not an accident, but rather that Knight fired at a bird knowing that Mikunda was in harm's way. The suit was settled out of court.
Later in his career, Knight would be accused of twice hitting people with shotgun pellets in Texas (without harm) while hunting doves.
