Best Answer

On the way home from the play "To Kill a Mockingbird," Scout and Jem were followed and attacked by Bob Ewell. Boo Radley intervened, saving the children and ultimately killing Bob Ewell in self-defense. The sheriff deemed it necessary to protect Boo from the legal consequences of his actions, so he reported Bob Ewell fell on his own knife.
