Arizona man Cameron Frank Read was accused of firing several gunshots Friday night and reported that he wanted to shoot the moon.
Police arrived at a home in Prescott Valley after a woman called about her boyfriend, who had fired several shots and was still armed.
The woman and her son heard Read, 39, talking about seeing Halley’s Comet before he shot a round out the window. The two fled after several shots, but were not injured.
Police first attempted to coax Read out of the house. He eventually exited the residence but resisted arrest. Officers were required to take him in by force.
Read admitted to firing the weapon more than once and attempting to shoot the moon. He also admitted to smoking marijuana beforehand.
Read was charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and endangerment.
