okay people this better stop this is going to far this man Mr Shiffner is paying now so all these comments and putting him down needs to stop.As yall dont know his family can press charges against yall for keeping on saying stuff like yall are doing on here and i will see to it .I was there and knowed what took place.Mr.Riffle shouldnt have been there nor his wife if they had small children at home.Mr.Shiffner is innocent until proven guilty.He did not flee .he had no idea there was a warrant for his arrest until somebody here called in and gave tips to his where abouts.Mr.Shiffner is a good guy like i have said before he wouldnt have done this unless he was provoked to and he was .Both hit each other and thats all im saying until court comes
YOU LIE AS BAD AS HE DOES, AND HIS NAME WAS ANNOUNCED BY HIMSELF NOT BY ME AND YES HE DID KNOW BECAUSE HE TALKED WITH THE INVESTIGATOR BEFORE HE TOOK OFF.JUST LIKE HE USED TO RUN FROM WOMAN TO WOMAN AND STATE TO STATE STAYING JUST OUT OF REACH OF THE WARRANTS FOR CHILD SUPPORT. LAW SUIT... FREEDOM OF SPEECH, GET OVER IT. AND NOTHING THAT HAS BEEN SAID CAN'T BE PROVEN. PS: GET OVER HIM, LONG SINCE THAT HAPPENED, I'M MARRIED NOW, DON'T WANT HIM OTHER THAN BEHIND BARS, THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS ON CDV HAVEN'T RUN OUT YET. AND I HAVE PROOF. AND AS FOR SOMEONE TURNING HIM IN. IF HE DIDN'T KNOW HE WAS WANTED WHY WAS IT NECESSARY FOR HIM TO HIDE. NO ONE TURNED HIM IN, HE CONTACTED THE INVESTIGATIORS IN LEXINGTON COUNTY AND HE TOLD THEM HIMSELF, THAT HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE MOVING BACK UP HERE FROM FLORIDA TO LIVE WITH HIS "SISTER". AFTER A PERIOD OF TIME HE DIDN'T SO THEY WENT AFTER HIM. NO ONE HAD TO TURN HIM IN, HIS LIES JUST CAUGHT UP WITH HIM. AND IF THIS IS HIS SISTER, YOU WERE TWO DOORS AWAY WHEN HE WAS SLAMMING ME IN TO THE WALLS ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION, SO DON'T TRY AND DENY IT. BECAUSE THE LORD KNOWS YOU WOULD BE LYING.

OKay I have waited long enough to reply. I have so much to say and so little time to say it. This person who is Claiming they were there. Unless you have proof that you were there such as oh I don't know pictures like we do... A reciept for the evening? Mr. Riffle Hospital evaluation from 3 am 2 hours after the accident. Mr. Riffle Was in Surgary for his injury by 4 PM The same day of his injury. YOU CAN BET that The Lexington County Police deptartment would not have gone after him in Florida if They did not have GOOD SOLID EVIDENCE OF His ACTIONS. Take into Account this. For 3 days WLTX Ran a Picture of "Mr. Montgomery" and More Than 1 person Called in to the newsroom to say who he was. Mr. Shiffner also called and left a message on the police's answering machine as well as that night harrassed myself and another girl via telephone while we were waiting on Mr. Riffle To get home from the hospital. Why is it that Mr. and Mrs. Riffle Were doing wrong to go out with a sitter at there home and kareoke until 12:30 leave the building to go home... RESPONSIBLY at that? Mr. Riffle Was Nothing of the sort intoxicated or in any way violent. He did react after his wrist was broken..... BUT, was unable to use his arm or his strength. He did however right-handedly drive his wife home... because she admitted she didn't feel safe driving. These are smart parents and You are wrong for saying anything of the sort. THis is a Good hearted Christian family that Now because of this Will never live a normal active life because of the damage done to his wrist. You may laugh and say HA whatever... he is lying....Or whatever Slanderish things you feel the need to say.... BUt, If anyone that is a Family Member of Mr. Shiffner I would advise them to know there is a NO CONTACT ORDER which means You are in NO way shape or form to talk to Mr. Riffle Or HIs Family. Which means Mrs. B If you are related to him. I would advise you to stop while you are ahead. This particular site will be shown in court if the detectives in any way think anything used here is slander. This is a place for comments... Not for arguing. Put. Yourself in the other shoes. Imagine Not KNowing If the person that did this would ever be caught knowing that your credit is ruined due too stacked up medical bills. Knowing that forever you will not be the same person come some guy in a bar decided he was going to get into something and Mr. Riffle Doing Nothing BUt, Thinking he was protecting a friend Steps in and get's injured permenatly.... Mr. Riffle Would not have ever been there if his wife did not like to sing. He hates bars, hate's smoke, hates crowds, but loves his wife and his friends..... To anyone else who chooses to try and make accusations. You might want to watch what you say. Cause Lexington Couty Is On the Side of JUSTICE. Mr Riffle, He did not run, he did not hide, He went straight to the ER, If The ER Felt he was Drunk or whatever I am sure that they would have tested for that. So we will let the records decide. Nobody wants Mr. schiffner in Jail. Mr. and Mrs. Riffle Deserve Justice. Mr Schiffner deserves a chance to turn his life around. BUT, Mr. Schiffner Did not plead not guilty. So those of you who think you know, have no idea. Mr. Schiffner knows what he did wrong that already is known. He would not have run if he didn't, he would have stayed and said.. HEY This isn't what happened. Oh and don't tell me he didn't see the news or that nobody told him of it. Everyone watches the news. Reads the paper! Stop saying ugly things that you have no idea about. Noboby is trying to attack Mr. Schiffner. Mr and Mrs. Riffle Never Thought The Police were going to do anything about it. They assumed they were stuck with this to deal with for the rest of there lives. IN No way are they perfect but, They don't deserve this. Or The lies and accusations these couple of people on this site are claiming. Thank you for your time.

I really appreciate that. Mr. Riffle Did Nothing Wrong. He thought he was doing right in protecting a friend. Mrs. B and Micheal Are now in direct violation of a no contact order and can hurt him worse if they keep assuming things. There are pictures of the night the ammout of acohol drank. Mr. Shiffner was involved in a fight with another gentlemen. That we also have a picture of. That was not involved with anyone in mr. riffle's group. There were several eye witnesses. I am just grateful that this will be over soon enough.

I should clarify that I am speaking of Mr. Shiffner's financial responsibility from the perspective of civil liability, not criminal guilt. Criminal guilt will have to be settled via the standard legal process (although I have expressed why I have reservations about Mr. Shiffner's story). Civil liability, on the other hand, means that if you cause an injury to someone -- regardless of whether it was a criminal act -- you owe the injured party recompense.
If person A does not intend to injure person B, and sees that his inadvertant or rash action has injured person B, he would not walk away and leave person B on the pavement in agonizing pain. He would visit person B in the hospital; he would contact person B in the aftermath, apologize, and try to help as much as he could. Is this how Mr. Shiffner has acted?
I have seen my friend Craig suffer both pain and financial loss, and it is my opinion that he has a right to damages under civil law.
So if Mr Shiffner would pay the medical bills and apologize all this would be over with?

light bulb... he has multiple hits on child support enforcement in pennsacola florida.. someone made a statement on here about that and it's true look it up yourself, that poor man (mr. rifle) is never going to see a dime of the medical bills. in fact if you look he still owes restituion to the state of florida concerning petty theft, the web site is escambia county clerk of court, you accept the disclaimer and just take a look. So, if that's all you are looking for is restituion then drop the charges you'll never see it.

I know the Riffle family personally. This incident has affected them on so many levels. Not only have the medical bills overwhelmed them but Mr. Riffles arm will never be the same again. They are a young family with two beautiful children. Two of the best behaved, intelligent, well mannered little kids I have ever met. Shame on anyone who is worrying about Mr. Shiffners well- being. Mr. Shiffner has forever changed the lives of 4 human beings. Two of whom were home fast asleep while their Daddy was being permanently damaged by Mr. Shiffners actions. Everyone has to take responsibility for their own mistakes. If anyone disagrees with that then you just don't get it. "It" is one of the BIGGEST words in the universe. Think about "IT"

I was not encouraging you to drop charges.. i'm just saying the likelyhood of him paying you a dime is few and far between considering he won't even take care of his children.

I wish all you all the luck in the world. I know for a fact you weren't at fault Mr. Rifle, I pray God speeds your recovery.

Just wanting to let you know. Thanks for the support and in this case... Justice was served. It will never be enough for what was caused, but it's something. God is so good.
