Richard HayesMichael Keith Bass

Michael Keith Bass, 21, was not having a good day: First, he gets shot by his stepfather, Richard Hayes, 37; then, when the authorities arrive, both of them get arrested.

Bass and Hayes both live at 2980 Burgaw Highway Lot 6, Jacksonville, N.C. where the incident occurred. Bass was shot by Hayes with a small caliber bullet, entering his left side. The bullet went right through his body. Hayes said he shot his stepson because he had a bad neck and he thought Bass was going to fight him.

When the authorities arrived Bass was holding a bloody towel to his abdomen, saying that his stepfather had shot him. Onslow County Sheriff deputies arrested Richard Hayes. They charged him with assault inflicting serious bodily injury and possession of a stolen firearm. His bond was set at $10,000.

However, during their investigation, the deputies discovered that Michael Keith Bass had two outstanding warrants for failing to appear in court on other criminal charges. Bass was no stranger to the court system. He was recently released from prison after serving time for felony breaking-and-entering. Bass was taken to Onslow Memorial Hospital where he was treated for his injuries. After being released from hospital Bass was arrested and sent to jail, with his stepfather, on $10,000 bail.

There’s an old saying that comes to mind: Like Father Like Son!!
