Man Arrested for Trying to Shoot the Moon

Cameron Read, 39, of Prescott, Ariz. was arrested last night for unlawfully discharging a firearm. He told police he was trying to shoot the moon, and later admitted that he was a little high.

KTVK-3 reports that Read's girlfriend called the cops after Read began shooting out of the window of their house and talking about Halley's Comet. She and her teenage son fled and were not injured. Read was wearing what appears to be a vest covered in palm trees at the time of the incident.
