Gun nut uses girl as shield

Midweek Sport - - WEEKEND SPORT -

A COW­ARDLY crim­i­nal used his four-year-old daugh­ter as a shield to avoid a shootout with po­lice.

Kyle Krup­pen­bacher, 29, got into an ar­gu­ment with his brother Kody that turned into an armed stand-off.

When cops ar­rived at the house they de­manded that he come out with his arms up.

But of­fi­cers said that Krup­pen­bacher fi­nally emerged “hold­ing his daugh­ter as a shield” and “re­fused to put her down.”

Later the ter­ri­fied girl was freed by deputies with­out suf­fer­ing any in­juries.

Krup­pen­bacher was arrested and charged with re­sist­ing ar­rest, pos­ses­sion of a firearm by a con­victed felon and felony bat­tery at his home in Lees­burg, Florida.
