Original Story

Kentucky State Police troopers in Pike County did not expect to find themselves in a standoff with a deer Friday afternoon.

Somehow, what appears to be a 12-point buck got into a hardware store and made a mess.

Troopers sent us pictures of the deer, which they said is being very aggressive. They are currently not sure how to get it out.

If they do get it out alive, police said it will not face any charges.
