Tri-Cities-TN-VA meteorologist Rob Williams continues to recover from a crossbow attack in his home that took place late last month.

But at least he’s had some sense of normalcy as he returned to work June 11, per his Facebook fan page.

Authorities told the Huffington Post that the WJHL-TV weatherman was wounded during a May 30 home invasion by a man he knew and lived with at one time.

Gerald D. Taylor, 53, has been charged with attempted first-degree murder.

Williams broke down the sequence of events for police, telling them Taylor also fired at him with a pistol but missed.

Williams told authorities he had been living with Taylor until a recent disagreement changed that. The meteorologist said he had to get an order of protection issued against Taylor.
