"I am the victim," claims Pittsfield Township man now charged with shooting at snowplow driver

PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP (WXYZ) - "Ma'am, I can assure you I am not a flight risk," said Bevan Lester Wilson who allegedly opened fire on a snowplow driver Tuesday. "I am the victim," Bevan claimed as he was hoping to convince the judge to set a lower bond.

Wilson, 39, appeared nervous and moaned as he heard the charges against him; Assault with Intent to Murder, Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, and Felony Firearms.

Action News has learned that Wilson also faced serious legal troubles in 2003. That's when he was charged in another case of attempted murder and aggravated assault in Wayne County. Records show he pleaded no contest to Aggravated Assault and the attempted murder charge was dropped.

After five years on probation, Wilson's record was cleared. We're told Detroit Police even had to return a set of fingerprints. 

In his new criminal case, Wilson's bond is set at $45,000 cash or surety. He's due back in court for his preliminary examination on March 4.
