Yow! FBI agent shot by booby-trapped wheelchair in fortified home

A former southern Oregon property owner has been charged with assault on a federal officer after, authorities say, an FBI agent sent to the property was shot from a booby-trapped wheelchair.

A criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Medford said officers found traps throughout the property from spike strips to a circular hot tub turned on its side and rigged to roll over anyone who triggered a tripwire.

Hearing that it happened in Medford doesn't surprise me.

Jackson and Josephine Counties have long been areas with a lot of anti-government wingnuts and conspiracy theorists.
