Drunk shooter called 911 and was arrested
Officers responded to a 911 call reporting a person being shot. They determined that no one had been shot, but a gun had been fired five times. The cops learned that the 911 caller had been in possession of the gun while intoxicated.
The caller resisted arrest and had to be subdued by several officers. Another person at the house had fired the rounds and was also intoxicated.
Breath tests at the scene indicated both had more than twice the legal limit for driving while intoxicated.
Police seized a Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum handgun. One person was booked for firearm possession while intoxicated and resisting and obstructing a police officer. The other was booked for firearm possession while intoxicated and reckless discharge of a firearm. (info from http://www.heraldpalladium.com)
