Arizona Man Arrested for Trying to Shoot the Moon

Cameron Read Arrested for Attempting to Shoot the Moon
Prescott Valley Police Department

I remember in Despicable Me when Gru stole the moon. That’s cool if you’re a villain.

Now, shooting the moon, that ain’t cool for anyone to try to do. You’re just going to wound it and it’ll keep flying.

Apparently some knucklehead named Cameron Read of Prescott, Arizona tried to do just that — shoot the moon!

Cameron was arrested on Tuesday night after his girlfriend called 911 after he started shooting from a window in their house and talking about Haley’s Comet.

When cops showed up, Cameron admitted to trying to shoot the moon. Oh yeah, he also fessed up to smoking some weed that night.

He’s facing several felony charges, including unlawful discharge of a firearm, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and endangerment.

In case you were pondering the math, it’s a far way from Arizona to the moon. The moon is about 238,900 miles from the Earth. That dude would have to have a long barrel!
