Father Charged in Son's Hunting Accident
Nov 21, 2003
The father of a 10 year-old Baltimore County boy who died
last month in a crossbow accident while hunting on the Eastern Shore has
been charged with a misdemeanor.
The Department of Natural Resources police said they
didn't want to upset the family any more than they are, but they had to
charge 39 year-old Christopher Mattison because he broke the law.
Tyler was carrying a crossbow even though he had never
partcipated in the state's hunter safety program and did not have a hunting
license. The crossbow fired while Tyler was climbing down from a tree stand.
Christopher Mattison is charged with one count of reckless endangerment.
