Fired For Finding A Gun While Mowing

John Chevilott of Michigan was fired after 23 years for finding a damaged and loaded revolver on his job while mowing the lawn. Officially, he was fired for possessing a weapon on work property.

He put the gun in their van hoping the Detroit police would drive by.

The union and Mr. Chevilott are going to fight.
