PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) — Trying to shoot the moon has gotten an Arizona man in trouble.

Authorities in Prescott Valley say Cameron Read admits he had been smoking pot when he fired a gun at the moon. Police busted him on suspicion of unlawfully discharging a firearm and other counts.

According to officials, Read’s girlfriend reported he had fired a handgun and was still armed.

She and her teenage son heard several shots before they took off.

They told police Read had been talking about seeing Halley’s Comet before shooting at the moon.
