Judge waffles on Waffle House shooter bail

  • James Shaw Jr. was honored Tuesday for his heroism in stopping the Antioch Waffle House shooter who killed 4 people

Police say he worked in construction for a while. He was arrested outside the White House past year after asking to speak to President Donald Trump, and his weird actions seemed to intensify in recent days with a auto theft. He's been jailed without bond.

When the operator asked who was stalking him, Reinking replied, "Taylor Swift".

Martellaro said the former co-worker left him with the impression that Reinking's interest in the sovereign citizen movement was part of his "delusional makeup".

What seemed to drive Reinking more than anything was an obsession with Swift, the report said.

"We think it is risky for the law to allow a third party, including a family member, to hold onto firearms when a person loses his or her gun eligibility", said Hannah Shearer, staff attorney at the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. One of his songs on YouTube is titled "Last Goodbye".

Waffle House has offered to pay for the funerals of all four victims killed in Sunday morning's shooting in the Antioch, Nashville, Tennessee location. "They got the weapons from the kid, then evidently, somebody in IL gave the weapons back to his father". He said the father replied that he was aware of the issues and "had been recently trying to rekindle his relationship with Travis", the police report said.

Another sheriff's report said Reinking barged into a community pool in Tremont, Illinois, last June, and jumped into the water wearing a pink woman's coat over his underwear.

"Your son's weapons were taken away for a specific reason", he continued. The father agreed to do so.

Meanwhile, James Shaw, Jr., the man known for his heroics, is receiving more praise for creating a GoFundMe page to help the shooting victims.




Reinking, who had a pistol and ammunition in a backpack when he was arrested, was not talking to police.

After that episode, authorities in IL revoked his gun license and confiscated four firearms, including what police said was the rifle used in the Waffle House shooting. "Everywhere I go. I'm pretty sure the police here are involved in it", Reinking said.

Signs of paranoid delusions continued: In August, Reinking told police he wanted to file a report about 20 to 30 people tapping into his computer and phone and people "barking like dogs" outside his residence, according to a report. IL officials said it was not clear if Jeffrey Reinking also could face local charges.

Reinking was sporting a inexperienced jacket when he stormed the Waffle Home in southeast Nashville and fired a weapon, authorities stated. A public defender assigned to Reinking did not respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

Authorities have not yet said what they believe motivated the shooting, saying only that Reinking had "exhibited significant instability". But the father, from Tazewell County, Illinois, 130 miles southwest of Chicago, eventually returned the weapons to his son, Nashville police said on Sunday.

Reinking apparently kept a low profile until recent days.

Reinking had not yet been connected to the stolen BMW. Police captured him following a massive manhunt that lasted more than 24 hours. "All day long I kept thinking that could've been us", she said.

He said he was glad others were saved.
