Police: Man shot at for leaning over fence

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man was arrested Monday afternoon for allegedly shooting near a man for leaning over his fence.

Charles Campbell, 46, is accused of firing two shots from his rifle at a man.

According to the police report, Campbell grew angry because the victim was leaning over a fence that surrounded Campbell's property on Glenda Court, near Shelbyville Road and North Hurstbourne Parkway.

Campbell allegedly asked the the man if he was aware of the "Castle Law," a Kentucky statute that gives residents the right to use deadly force when they have "a reasonable fear of imminent peril of death."

The police report goes on to say that while the victim was still leaning over the fence, Campbell fired two shots from an AR-15 Bushmaster into the ground approximately 10 feet in front of the victim.

After being arrested, Campbell gave a statement and admitted to firing the shots, his arrest report says.

He was charged with one count of wanton endangerment.
