Raiders | Former Kicker Fires at Siegfried and Roy

Former Oakland Raiders PK Cole Ford, charged with firing several shotgun blasts at the Las Vegas compound of illusionists Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn in September 2004, viewed the entertainers as a threat, according to a psychiatric evaluation report. The report, published in the Saturday, Apr. 9 edition of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, was conducted last November by psychiatrist Norton Roitman. Roitman wrote, "While watching Siegfried and Roy, [Ford] had a sudden realization that what was wrong with the world was linked to the illusionists' treatment, dominance and unhealthy intimacy he saw them having with their animals. He saw their illusions as their power to distort and change reality. He felt they threatened [the] world, and he began to figure out how he could stop them." Ford, who has been ruled incompetent to stand trial, has been sent to a mental health facility for treatment, according to the Associated Press. No one was injured in the shooting.
