Olympic Athlete Cited for Hunting Deer on Lexus Dealership

An Olympic athlete who, according to a neighbor, has been down on his luck, was cited on byers-jpgThursday for deer hunting at a Lexus dealership.

Police in Colorado claim that they were called to the dealership after someone reported seeing a man hunting on the property with a crossbow.

Soldier and former Olympian Dremiel Byers was taken to jail over the incident, but wasn’t booked because the charges were misdemeanors. He is facing several wildlife viοlations.

Police report that when they arrived they found that the deer had been shοt with an arrow.

“The deer was shot once, kind of toward the back end,” said Abbie Walls, spokeswoman for Parks and Wildlife, according to local affiliate KRDO.  “It wasn’t really a clean shοt.  This is the fourth case of poaching in the city this year.  We take it seriously.”

FOX21 reports that Byers has been in the Army for 20 years and is a member of the World Class Athletes program.

A man who identified himself only as Jason said he confronted Byers about hunting the deer but was summarily dismissed.

“He told us to not worry about it and mind our own business,” Jason said.  “He said he had to feed his dogs.”

Weston Tomberlin, who lives next door to Byers, said the former Olymbian has been having a hard time.

“He’s a little hungry,” Tomberlin said.  “He never asks me for help because he’s too proud.  I don’t see anything wrong with (the poaching incident).  The man was doing what he had to do, to eat.  He tried to do it the safest way.  He was using a bow and arrow, and not a firearm.  So he did what he could to protect the people around him.  So he was a smart man about it.”

The deer was euthanized.
