SHARTLESVILLE, Pa., July 21 (UPI) -- A man in Pennsylvania kept local police on their toes Saturday, eliciting multiple 911 calls for first hitting parked cars with a snowmobile and then later attempting to shoot his wife.

Randy Lee Heckman's first run-in with authorities came just before noon Saturday, when a summertime snowmobile joyride went predictably awry as Heckman crashed the winter vehicle into multiple cars on Main Street in Shartlesville, Pa., and attempting to flee.

When police identified Heckman, he was issued citations for multiple hit-and-runs, driving without a license and trespass by a motor vehicle -- but was not arrested.

Despite the disciplinary action by local state police, Heckman's wild weekend was just getting started.

At 2:30 a.m. Sunday, Heckman fired a .357 revolver at his wife multiple times as she was attempting to leave their property after a heated late-night argument.

State police quickly put an end to Heckman's bizarre weekend rampage, arresting the 43-year-old and charging him with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, reckless endangerment and harassment.
