Man Arrested For Shooting At The Moon

main.jpg

Once in a blue Moon somebody shoots at it. Indeed, as you might already have mustered from the ridiculous headline above, one trigger-happy individual just has been arrested for doing just that.

The lunar assassin in question? Cameron Read, 39, from Prescott Arizona, who's believed to have begun firing shots out of a window at his girlfriend’s house while talked about Hayley’s Comet, yesterday evening.

When the police responded to emergency calls after the shots rang out, he told officers that he was “trying to shoot the moon,” before admitting that he was under the influence of narcotics.

Adding to the ridiculousness, Read was reportedly wearing a vest covered in palm trees at the time of the incident - an incident for which was booked into the Yavapai County Jail on suspicion of felony counts of unlawful discharge of a firearm, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and endangerment plus misdemeanor criminal damage.

He's just lucky the moon isn't pressing charges.
