Followup WV: Charges dropped in Self Defense Shooting
Underwood ended up charged with attempted murder, malicious wounding and wanton endangerment. But on Tuesday prosecutors, the judge and even the victim agreed to a pre-trial diversion for Underwood. If he commits no criminal acts for six months, the charges will go away. His lawyer contended that the video of the fight, which started between two women and spread to involve others, backed Underwood's self-defense claim. He pulled a gun, but his defense argues that Scott could have backed off at that point but did not.
