A Southington man is facing charges after police said he fired a gun into the air while intoxicated.
Police arrested 49-year-old Reeton Jones on Tuesday.
Jones was reportedly under the influence of alcohol when he approached an unknown vehicle that was near his home with a handgun.
Police said he reportedly pointed the gun at the car and the man inside. The man apologized and drove away.
As the car was driving away, police said Jones fired a shot into the air.
Jones has a valid permit to carry a firearm.
He was charged with illegal discharge of a firearm, illegal possession of a firearm while under the influence of alcohol, second-degree breach of peace, and first-degree reckless endangerment.
He was released on a $10,000 bond and is expected to appear in court later this month.
