Arizona police arrest man for shooting at the moon

PHOENIX (Reuters) - A marijuana smoker was arrested in Arizona after shooting at the moon with a handgun and wrestling with officers who were called by his girlfriend to subdue him, authorities said on Wednesday.

Police went to a home in Prescott Valley, about 85 miles north of Phoenix, late last Friday where the woman told them her partner had fired several shots into the air after telling her and her teenage son he had seen Halley's Comet.

Prescott Valley police spokesman Sergeant Brandon Bonney said Cameron Read, 39, was arrested after a struggle and admitted firing multiple times and "trying to shoot the moon."

Bonney said Read also confessed to smoking marijuana before the incident, and told officers he had not wanted to hurt anyone.

I do that regularly. First, I pass my low hearts, unless I have a lot of high hearts to cover. Then I dump my low club on the 2, and then lead a medium spade until hearts are broken, and I take all the tricks.

There was a guy in my neighborhood that was literally building a “Stairway to Heaven”.

I’m sure he wasn’t arrested.

The moon is moving quite fast and gravity causes more drop than you expect, so you'll have to shoot high and lead the target by about ten degrees.

Or a Vice President perhaps? Following Biden's advice will get a person arrested. I know a well respected guy in my neighborhood who was arrested for firing a warning shot in the air on his own property.

Folks in Prescott Valley, on marijuana or not, like to shoot at random things. They used to have this historic bronze statue of an Elk from the Elks’ Club there, but the locals made a routine of using it for target practice, so they had to remove it and have it restored and relocated over to Prescott proper.

The moon has always interested me. It just sits up there in the sky, just hanging there. Looking down upon us all from it’s lofty position up in the heavens.

You need to use the Kentucky long barrel rifle (or your Daisy Red Ryder BB gun) in order to hit the moon (and you have to let your BB ride the polar vortex all the way up).

(Maybe this guy should have just tried to lasso the moon.)

Contacted by reporters, the Man in the Moon confirmed that no one was injured in the fracas. “Luckily for me, the guy was impaired, or I might have gotten a few more craters, you know what I mean?”
