BLAIRSVILLE, Pa. (March 27, 2013)--Arcangelo Bianco, Jr., 40, is charged with reckless endangerment and hunting law violations after he fired across a highway in November to kill a 10-point buck he spotted in a Walmart parking lot, the Pennsylvania Game Commission says.
Defense attorney Jason Huska declined comment Wednesday on the specific allegations, but said his client denies wrongdoing.
Bianco faces a preliminary hearing May 1 on the charges.
Bianco fired several shots in the parking lot and then retrieved the deer from the side of the highway opposite the store, about 30 miles east of Pittsburgh, Wildlife Conservation Officer Jack Lucas said.
Lucas said the buck was one of the nicest taken in the county in recent years.
