Augusta Man Arrested for Shooting at Squirrels in His Backyard


An Augusta man went to jail for shooting at squirrels in his backyard.

The crime: Discharge of firearms on or near a public highway.

Charles Corley Adams, 58, told officers Friday morning that he fired two rounds at squirrels while outside on the 2000 block of Tubman Home Road. Unfortunately, that’s a misdemeanor. It was near a public street, according to an arrest warrant.

Someone heard the gunfire and called the cops. Deputies recovered a Remington 12-gauge shotgun, which was seized and taken to an evidence locker at 400 Walton Way, a report says.

And Adams went to jail. (But he was released the same day on bond.)
