Ave Maria Law Student Charged With Attempted Murder

This horrifying story needs its own post. Ave Maria School of Law student Robert Ringley is charged with attempted murder and with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, for his actions towards two fellow Ave Maria Law classmates. In a drunken rage, the accused took a gun, forced his two classmates on to their knees and threatened to kill them, and actually shot at one (but fortunately missed).

The Naples News has all the details. He's being held on a $1 million bond.

Above the Law has three articles with lots more details and information:
First, an article about the incident and a copy of the arrest report.
Second, some personal information about the accused.
Third, copies of emails sent by Dean Milhizer about the situation.

According to Dean Milhizer's emails, Ringley has "permanently withdrawn" from AMSOL and is barred from campus. But the Naples News reported that in August 2010, Ringley was convicted of a misdemeanor DUI and sentenced to 12 months' probation and 50 hours of community service hours. Did AMSOL know about this?
