The owner of a mechanical repair shop in Milwaukee, WI will serve a maximum seven years in prison for shooting a customer in the leg.
Anthony Wayne Smith is the owner of four companies, including Precision Custom Car Care and Unique Custom Car Care.
Surveillance video confirms Smith fired a single shot into a customer’s leg following a verbal altercation.
“I was aiming at the floor to scare the guy. I didn’t know he was shot until the next day when my lawyer called me because I locked the door. He was walking away, so I figured he was okay. He was leaving the building and the customers were safe. I didn’t know I shot him,” Smith said.
While Smith serves time, his wife, Allison, will run their four businesses.
