A state Rep. gets himself involved in a shooting. Rep. Borris Miles voted against the Castle Doctrine

A state lawmaker who opposed a bill giving Texans stronger right to defend themselves with deadly force pulled a gun and shot a man he says was trying to steal copper wiring from a construction site, police said Monday.

Rep. Borris Miles told police he was fixing a leak on the second floor of the Houston house he's building Sunday night when he heard a noise downstairs and saw two men trying to steal the copper. After Miles confronted the pair, one of the men threw a pocketknife at him, Houston Police spokesman Victor Senties.

The Castle doctrine doesn't go into affect until Sept 1st. He could get sued. Wouldn't that be fun!
