A Glenwood man who accidentally shot himself on a school playground late last week now faces charges.
The Mills County Attorney's Office says Douglas Trent Good has been charged with carrying weapons on school grounds, a class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison or a fine of $750 to $7,500. Authorities say Good accidentally shot himself in the leg at Glenwood West Elementary School's playground pickup area late Friday afternoon. Good was reportedly sitting in his vehicle when the gun accidentally discharged.
A former police officer in Glenwood, Creston, and Bellevue, Good currently works as a firearms trainer, and runs his own private investigating business, specializing in divorce and child custody cases. Good ran an unsuccessful campaign for Glenwood mayor last fall, losing to incumbent Kim Clark in November.
