Teen arrested for east valley rock-shooting incident speaks out

DPS Troopers arrested three men, accused of damaging cars with slingshots in the east valley.

Now one of those men, 18-year-old Aaron Nottingham is speaking out.

Nottingham is in jail for assault, endangerment, and criminal damage.

Some of the victims took pictures of Nottingham's car and license plate and called DPS.

Troopers tracked the three down to a location in Chandler.

He says he didn't know his buddies were shooting at cars with small rocks when he found out he couldn't do anything about it because he was behind the wheel.

"I want to apologize, I didn't mean for anybody to get hurt or for anybody to be scared, I didn't want anybody's vehicles to be damaged, I didn't mean for this to happen. Everyone is calling us the copy cat I-10 shooter, and that's not true, we're just a few teenagers going out and having fun and made a stupid decision and ended up here. I got a lot of threats the first time I was in my pod and I had one of the inmates give me a warning saying the other inmates didn't like me there, and he told me that he recommended me to stay somewhere else," said Aaron Nottingham.

Nottingham says he dropped out of high school, is homeless and living in his car. The other men arrested are Albert German and Christian Cook.
