Deputies arrested a man Sunday afternoon, after they say he shot at his neighbor after a fight.
Aythorities say Alexander Houston Richardson, 52, of Idleyld Park, was involved in a physical fight with a neighbor, before going across the street to his trailer and grabbing a 30-30 rifle.
Officials say Richardson fired a shot across the highway toward the male victim and several houses.
After going back inside his trailer, officials say several deputies arrived and took Richardson into custody without further incident.
Richardson was lodged in the Douglas County Jail and charged by deputies with Attempted Second Degree Assault, Pointing a Firearm at Another Person, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Disorderly Conduct, Menacing and Recklessly Endangering.
He should be able to plea those charges down to something everyone can live with. He'll be right back in action after the dust settles.
Instead, he should have been charged with felony attempted murder.
