 A Town of Royalton man put a scare into his neighbors over the weekend when he took two shots at a raccoon up in a tree and they ricocheted into a home.

20-year-old Evan Farnsworth was arrested on charges of reckless endangerment after a 54-year-old neighbor and his 84-year-old mother heard shots ring through the house.

The son went upstairs and found a broken perfume bottle on the floor, then realized there were a pair of holes in the mirror on the wall.

He called 9-1-1 and police came out and and questioned Farnsworth, who openly admitted he'd shot at the raccoon.

He apologized and insisted on paying for damages, but was still charged.
