The same Arkansas City man who told police that he had been shot by an unknown assailant has now been charged in connection with that shooting. 46 year old Bruce Pendlay is now facing charges of criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and interference with law enforcement, along with false reporting of a crime. Pendlay was locked up in the Cowley County Jail, in lieu of $3,000 bond, which he posted and then was released. Pendly told police that he was shot by someone back in January just outside of Winfield. He later admitted that he shot himself in an unsuccessful suicide attempt. If convicted of felony possession of a firearm, he could face up to 23 months in prison and a fine of up to $100,000 and 12 months of post release supervision. A conviction on the interference charge could mean up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $2,500. Pendlay served prison time from 1991 to 2008 in Oklahoma on miscellaneous charges.
