[Lady prosecutor] suggested that [Shaver] could have just left the bar if he had felt so intimidated.For readers unfamiliar with Mr. Shaver and his oeuvre, we must point out that he is not a 23-year-old hip-hop artiste of the Southern school but rather a 70-year-old Caucasian who could pass for 80 and many years ago lost parts of a couple of fingers while working in a lumber mill. We needn't add that they don't make 'em like Billy Joe Shaver anymore, although we're not entirely certain how we feel about that.
That would have been "chicken shit," Shaver replied.
[Lady prosecutor] asked whether Shaver was jealous that [the victim] at the time was talking to Shaver's wife, Wanda.
"I get more women than a passenger train can haul. I'm not jealous," Shaver said.
