Arizona Man Arrested After Shooting at the Moon, High on Marijuana

A man was arrested by Prescott Valley police after he shot his handgun in a residence and claimed he was shooting at the moon.

On Friday, a 49-year-old woman called police because her boyfriend had fired shots from a handgun and was still armed at the time, according to the Prescott Valley Police Department.

Officers arrived at a residence near Robert Road and Loos Drive where they confronted 39-year-old Cameron Read.

Read initially refused to leave the residence, but eventually exited and resisted arrest before being taken into custody by force, according to police.

The victims told police Read had commented about seeing Halley’s Comet, and shortly after, began firing out a window.

The victims heard several shots before fleeing the residence.

Read later told officials he was not trying to harm anyone, but was shooting at the moon. He also admitted to smoking marijuana before the shooting.

No victims were injured.

Read was booked into Yavapai County Jail and faces seven charges including criminal damage, disorderly conduct and endangerment.

Technically, I think he had been smoking stupid for a long time before that.

Taking windage and elevation into account, you’d need to aim pretty high.

It would have never happened if only the moon had minded its own business and not stared at Dewey . . .
