Cincinnati Reporter Hit by Arrow

By Kevin Eck 

WXIX reporter Jody Barr was hit by an arrow while he was out reporting over the weekend.

“I was walking back to my news car after I finished a shoot when I stepped up on the curb and I heard the sound of an aluminum arrow hit the concrete,” said Barr. “It bounced off my right leg and landed in the grass beside the sidewalk. As soon as I heard the ‘tink’ I knew exactly what it was. It was the same guy in the park soon after I first arrived walking around Westwood with a compound bow.”

“The suspect recklessly shot an arrow from a compound bow in the direction of victim,” WXIX reports the incident report states. “The arrow struck a curb near victim before hitting victim on the leg, causing no injury.”

Daniel Fisher, the guy who shot Barr, has been charged with one count of assault and is being held on $10,000 bail.
