On this edition of Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards shares a story from Fort Wayne, Indiana where Michael Collier, 43, was initially charged with murder and aggravated battery after an argument at the State Bar & Grill resulted in James A. Heinze, 52, being shot in the chest. According to evidence, however, it was a classic case of self-defense, and all charges have been dropped. Originally aired 3/12/2012.
