A man who was shot in a work dispute learned a few days later that a judge granted a protection order against him -- requested by the man who shot him.
Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees was pepper-sprayed and arrested early Thursday after he allegedly ran from away from an off-campus party and knocked the wind out of a police officer who caught up to him.
When the department is interviewing a job candidate, Trent said, interviewers offer a chance for explanation if a protection order is in a candidate's background.
"This piece of paper is rearing its ugly head when, in fact, it was found to be completely unfounded," he said. "There needs to be some re-education for hiring departments and HRs, that just because there exists a protection order does not mean it's been thoroughly vetted."
