A convicted felon is captured in the parking lot of an Asheville post office. News 13 was there as he taken into custody by Buncombe County deputies.
It all started Tuesday when deputies say a family made a wrong turn onto 47-year-old David Smith's property looking for a pony ride. Deputies say Smith got mad and fired shots at the family, hitting their car. Luckily, no one was injured. When deputies came to arrest Smith on Thursday, he took off. Deputies found him a short time later in the parking lot of the post office.
Smith's neighbor says this was all very surprising.
David Smith is facing several charges including possession of a firearm by a felon. He is currently in the Buncombe County Jail.
