It was only this week that we discovered that Jon Gosselin was working as a waiter at a local Pennsylvania restaurant, Black Dog. Only we didn't quite "discover" it -- Jon went on Entertainment Tonight and announced it to the world. So it's strange that Jon was reportedly so upset with a photographer trying to take his picture that Jon allegedly fired a warning shot from his gun to get rid of her. TMZ reports that Gosselin, who lives in the woods of rural Pennsylvania without Internet or TV, was outraged when a photographer followed him in her car through the back country roads, thinking it was public property. But apparently not. And Jon didn't take kindly to it one bit.
Jon apparently grabbed a gun out of the back of his pants, yelled at the pap for trespassing, and then fired a warning shot. Jon reportedly admits he fired a "warning shot" and claims it is well within his rights.
The photographer told TMZ that she quickly hoofed it out of there (good idea) but that Jon followed her in his car until she got back to the main road. She reportedly plans to file a police report. You would think she would have done that before calling TMZ!
Anyway, it's no doubt that having a photographer follow you onto your property is totally annoying, but if Jon is going to keep putting himself in the public eye -- which appearing on Entertainment Tonight and publishing a tell-all book about his ex-wife, Kate, is doing, what does he expect?
Additionally, it's concerning that he's so willing to whip out a gun. Jon says he still sees his eight children with Kate regularly, but admits he doesn't pay child support, nor have any kind of a relationship with Kate other than through text message.
This is just massive stupidity. Who knows if it could affect Jon's employment as well as his custody arrangement with his children -- it certainly makes him look like a hothead.
Do you think Jon had a right to do this?
