Oklahoma man, 45, arrested for shooting an unarmed woman, 26, who tore down a Nazi flag flying in front of his home claims self-defense after he shot her with his AR-15 as she ran away
Feaster is accused of shooting the young woman four times with his AR-15 as she ran away from his home after stealing the Nazi flag on a dare.
He was charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon and shooting with intent to kill.
Feaster has claimed in court documents that he is a 'patriotic citizen' and 'loyal American' who feared he was in 'imminent danger of death or great bodily harm' when McVey snatched the flag.
Alexander Feaster, 45, (left) was charged back in June over the shooting incident involving 26-year-old Kyndal McVey (right) outside his home in the small town of Hunter, north of Oklahoma City
The court documents were filed as Feaster argued for a reduction to to his $300,000 bond.
In the court filings, Feaster argued that his political beliefs made him a constant target for threats.
He said the swastika flags outside his home 'were associated in the public's consciousness with the Third Reich and National Socialism'.
Feaster argued that McVey should have been charged with theft, trespassing, public intoxication and a hate crime.
Police said McVey was at a party across the street when she was dared to steal one of two Nazi flags from outside Feaster's home in the early hours of June 28.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Feaster used his AR-15 to fire eight shots - four of which struck McVey in the back and lower legs as she ran away.
McVey collapsed in a ditch and a friend administered first aid before first responders arrived.

A neighbor moved their pickup truck in front of Feaster's home to create a barricade for McVey's protection and another witness trained a gun on his house as a precaution.
Deputies who responded to the scene arrested Feaster without incident.
McVey spent several weeks in hospital and underwent multiple surgeries for her injuries.
Investigators say a search of Feaster's house yielded 15 firearms and showed signs he was 'anticipating an incident'.
They found a chair positioned near the front of the house facing the door.
'There was a large ashtray containing several cigarette buts and a handcuff pouch containing handcuffs on a box next to the chair,' the probable cause affidavit said.
'It appeared that Mr Feaster was anticipating an incident to take place and had been watching from that spot.'
A judge granted his motion to lower his bond to $75,000.
Feaster was released shortly after but ordered not to have any contact with McVey.
