Ex-NFL Kicker Fires at Siegfried & Roy
Sat Apr 9, 6:56 PM ET

LAS VEGAS - A former NFL kicker accused of shooting at the compound of Siegfried & Roy viewed the illusionists as a threat, according to a psychiatric evaluation report.

The evaluation was performed by psychiatrist Norton Roitman on Nov. 10, a week after Cole Ford was charged with firing several shotgun blasts at the Las Vegas home of entertainers Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn.

The report was published in Saturday's editions of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Ford, 32, a former kicker for the Oakland Raiders, has been ruled incompetent to stand trial and sent to a mental health facility in Sparks for treatment.

Ford maintained he never intended to harm anyone and his actions were only intended to "warn the world of the illusionists' unhealthy danger to them and to animals," the report said.

"While watching Siegfied and Roy, he had a sudden realization that what was wrong with the world was linked to the illusionists' treatment, dominance and unhealthy intimacy he saw them having with their animals," Roitman wrote in the report.

"He saw their illusions as their power to distort and change reality. He felt they threatened (the) world, and he began to figure out how he could stop them," Roitman added.

No one was hurt in the Sept. 21 drive-by shooting, but police said shotgun pellets shattered windows and left a hole in an outside wall at the magicians' home.

Ford told Roitman that he thought the entertainers' contact with their animals was related to the development of viruses such as AIDS.

"Mr. Ford was completely unguarded in his report of his beliefs of unhealthy sexual contact being committed by the illusionists against their animals," Roitman wrote.

After being drafted out of USC in 1995, Ford kicked for three seasons with the Raiders but was cut after he missed several crucial kicks in 1997.

He had been working as a laborer in the Las Vegas area before he was arrested.

Roitman said Ford was not paranoid schizophrenic but had shown symptoms of the illness.

Because Ford's symptoms do not fit into any one mental illness, he would be difficult to diagnose, Roitman said.

Ford has been sent to Lakes Crossing Center in Sparks, where doctors are treating him in hopes he eventually will be competent to stand trial on several charges, including felony assault with a deadly weapon.

I think he would have been much happier as a jazz musician. With a name like Cole Ford, everyone would have come to see him, no matter how much he sucked at it. Anything's better than his kicking.

Former Oakland Raiders PK Cole Ford, charged with firing several shotgun blasts at the Las Vegas compound of illusionists Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn in September 2004, viewed the entertainers as a threat, according to a psychiatric evaluation report. The report, published in the Saturday, Apr. 9 edition of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, was conducted last November by psychiatrist Norton Roitman. Roitman wrote, "While watching Siegfried and Roy, [Ford] had a sudden realization that what was wrong with the world was linked to the illusionists' treatment, dominance and unhealthy intimacy he saw them having with their animals. He saw their illusions as their power to distort and change reality. He felt they threatened [the] world, and he began to figure out how he could stop them." Ford, who has been ruled incompetent to stand trial, has been sent to a mental health facility for treatment, according to the Associated Press. No one was injured in the shooting.


pretty much the same report.

Anyways, all I have to say is, what do you expect? He lived in Oakland...
