Former NFL kicker sought in connection to shooting at Sigfried and Roy's house
I could not make this shit up if I tried. There is more to it than this I have to believe.
Cole Murdoch Ford, 31, whose three-year NFL career ended after he missed crucial kicks during the 1997 season, was named in a felony warrant stemming from the September 21 shooting, Sgt. Chris Jones said.
Police identified Ford as the owner of a white minivan from which shots were fired at the compound owned by the illusionists known as Siegfried & Roy. No one was hurt, but police said shotgun pellets shattered windows and left a hole in a wall.
Ford was drafted out of the University of Southern California in 1995 by the Pittsburgh Steelers but was released before the season began. He signed with the Raiders and remained on the team for three seasons before being cut.
