Arizona man arrested for attempted lunar murder.
One of these days, Alice... (via AZ Family)
An attempted moon shooting took place in Prescott, AZ Friday night, leading to the arrest of Cameron Frank Read.
According to AZ Family, Read's girlfriend and her son were in the Prescott home when Read, high on marijuana, saw Haley's comet and became inspired to shoot the moon with his firearm. Unfortunately, science has not created a household weapon that can reach that menacing melon ball in the sky so, despite Read's optimism, he shot out a couple windows instead, leading his girlfriend to lose faith in his marksmanship and call the police. Read resisted arrest and swore he wasn't trying to hurt anyone. He just wanted to get that moon.
Now before you get all judgy and start thinking, "Arizona is just full of people who get high and shoot at the moon with their handguns," I want you to know that, as an Arizona native, I can tell you firsthand that that isn't true. We also get high and shoot ducks on golf courses. And sometimes we get high and pee into the Grand Canyon.
Read is being held on felony charges of one count of unlawful discharge of a firearm, one count of resisting arrest, two counts of disorderly conduct and two counts of endangerment. He also faces misdemeanor criminal damage.
It's just like they say, "Shoot for the moon. If you miss, at least you'll land yourself behind bars."
