Sep 14, 2016

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  The Sumner County man accused of shooting his 11-year-old daughter as school began in mid-August will be in court again Wednesday.

Timothy Batts says he accidently shot his daughter as she returned home from school thinking she was an intruder.

A few days later a controversial video came to light showing Batts celebrating with supporters as he was released on bond. Shortly after that he failed a drug test, a part of his bond condition.

WTVF-TV reports a judge will decide Wednesday whether to send Batts back to jail to await his trial.
