Watercooler Talk

BURNSVILLE, Minn. (AP) — A man was charged with a felony after prosecutors alleged he tried to impress a woman by firing arrows at his neighbors’ homes with a powerful bow. Police found arrows in the siding of townhomes in the man’s complex on Saturday. Another arrow went through a patio door, shattering the glass.

The charges allege the 30-year-old man was “extremely intoxicated” when questioned by police. So was his female friend.

She allegedly told investigators that they had been drinking all night before the man grabbed his bow and walked onto the deck. She thought he wanted to “play Rambo.”

Dakota County prosecutors said the man eventually admitted that he did it for “giggles.”

The man was charged Wednesday with first-degree criminal damage to property.
