Contractor shoots employee twice, police say
GOSHEN — State police say a construction company owner shot his only employee on two days this month with a BB gun and now faces felony assault and other charges.
Police said contractor Nicholas Revella Jr., 29, shot the man outside his home on Jessup Switch Road in the Town of Goshen, where Revella runs his business out of a garage.
The next afternoon at around 4 p.m., Revella shot the victim in the calf and thigh, police say. The two apparently were arguing over the victim’s drinking and work issues.
Revella surrendered on Tuesday. He was arraigned and released after posting bail. He is to reappear in Goshen Town Court.
I’ll bet this guy goes back for a third stint, as soon as the boss gets out of jail. But how bad must you hate your employee when you shoot him even though he’s the ONLY one who works for you? Can you imagine needing a construction job done on your house and calling this business owner? He’d have to say, “Jeez, sure, I’d love to fix your roof, but you’ll have to hold the ladder, OK?”
