PRESCOTT VALLEY , Ariz., June 11 (UPI) -- An Arizona man was arrested Friday night after he told police he was "trying to shoot the moon" with his handgun.

Cameron Read's girlfriend called Prescott Valley police after he allegedly fired several shots and "spoke of seeing Halley's Comet," the Republic reported.

When police arrived, the 39-year-old resisted arrest, caused damage and was taken into custody forcefully.

PVPD spokesman Sgt. Brandon Bonney said Read admitted to "firing the weapon multiple times and trying to shoot the moon," according to AZ Family. Read said that he had smoked marijuana prior to the incident and that he did not intend to hurt anyone.

Read was booked on suspicion of felony counts of unlawful discharge of a firearm, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and endangerment in addition to a count of misdemeanor criminal damage.
