Witness Claims Billy Joe Shaver Shooting Was Unprovoked
A witness claims in her affidavit that she heard Shaver demanded Coker "Tell me you are sorry", and saying, "Nobody tells me to shut up."
Coker says he had spoke to Shaver for an hour inside the bar where the pair discovered the musician's wife Wanda Lynn was the widow of Coker's cousin.
Coker alleges Shaver demanded the men step outside and said, "Where do you want it?" before shooting him in the cheek.
Earlier this week, Shaver's lawyer Joseph A. Turner claimed his client acted in self-defense when he was approached by a "drunk and aggressive stranger holding a knife" as he left the bar.
Turner admits he is surprised to hear none of the witness accounts mention Coker's alleged knife, saying, "Clearly the witnesses did not see the whole thing if they didn't see the knife."
Shaver has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawfully carrying a handgun on the premises of a business with a license to sell alcohol for on-premises consumption and released on $50,000 bond.
