    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife? It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Pima County jury reached a mixed verdict in the trial of a man arrested following a near-deadly shooting of a Tucson Police officer.

A jury Monday found Ricky Mendoza guilty of burglary and weapons charges, but not guilty of aggravated assault in the shooting of Sgt. Bob Carpenter, who was struck in the head on Nov. 18, 2012 as he and other officers investigated a burglary call.

Sgt. Carpenter underwent emergency brain surgery following the shooting and has since made a near full recovery.

Mendoza's trial lasted about a week. He's scheduled for sentencing next month.
