Charges: Pa. man bagged in deer Wal-Mart lot
BLAIRSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - March 27, 2013 (WPVI) -- They say you can get almost anything at Wal-Mart. But the Pennsylvania Game Commission says one deer hunter took it too far.
Forty-year-old Arcangelo Bianco Jr. is charged with reckless endangerment and hunting law violations for allegedly shooting across a highway to kill a 10-point buck he spotted in a Wal-Mart parking lot in November.
Defense attorney Jason Huska declined comment Wednesday on the specific allegations but says his client denies wrongdoing. Bianco faces a preliminary hearing May 1.
Wildlife Conservation Officer Jack Lucas says Bianco fired several shots in the parking lot then retrieved the deer from the side of the highway opposite the store, about 30 miles east of Pittsburgh.
Lucas says the buck is one of the nicest taken in the county in recent years.
