ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Doug Stone's 1992 hit with the line "They ought to put warning labels on them sad country songs" may have been beneficial over the weekend when a man shot his radio.
A daily activity report stated that an ACSO deputy responded to a 911 call about shots fired at a home in the 6000 block of FM 2251 at about 6:07 a.m. Sunday and found a man inside a vehicle in his own yard.

The man told the deputy that he had gotten drunk and was in his pickup listening to music when a sad song he didn't like began playing. At that point, the suspect allegedly shot the radio in his truck with a .22-caliber pistol.

"Suspect's wife took possession of the handgun and suspect," the activity report stated.
