I live in this state and police really close to this jurisdiction and know the laws. Sucks that this guy got arrested. I agree that the damage to the property was correct for the charge of criminal mischief, but the officers should have let the man take the case to court without an arrest. The laws for shooting a firearm in this area are simple, if you are doing it safely you are doing it legally. This means that the charge of wanton endangerment was a bull**** charge. Shooting birdshot upwards into the air(assuming not at an angle with possible people around that direction), is NOT putting people into grave danger of death or serious physical injury. The charge is incorrect and I hope he beats it. I feel sorry for this guy.
