Police reports of an alleged shooting incident involving Texas Tech coach Bob Knight differ slightly from the account given by the Lubbock man who made the allegations.

James Simpson told The Associated Press that birdshot came into his yard three times on October 21st. He also says he yelled three times from a distance at Knight and a hunting companion man to move away from his home to hunt dove.

Police reports indicate that Simpson only told the officer about only one instance when birdshot hit his house, after which he yelled at the two hunters to "back up."

The report goes on to state that a pellet struck Simpson's head. Simpson told the AP that pellets hit his neck and back.

Simpson on Thursday said his account of the incident to The AP did not differ from the one he gave to police last month.

Police closed the case November 2nd.
