WASHINGTON, Pa. – December 26, 2011 – A Pennsylvania man has been jailed on
attempted homicide and other charges for allegedly trying to shoot his wife because
he believes she spends too much time on the Facebook social networking site. Fifty
one-year-old Harry Hibbs Jr., remained jailed Monday unable to post $500,000 bail
set by a judge after his arrest on Christmas Eve. North Strabane Township police say
there were two children in the home at the time, and that Hibbs’ wife was holding one
of them – a 2-year-old – when he pushed her to the ground and hit her in the head with
a gun. Police say Hibbs then tried to shoot the woman, but the gun malfunctioned.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for Hibbs, who is also charged with assault
and reckless endangerment.
