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.)
