A Vermont man is in jail after shooting out his smoke detectors.
State Police in Barton say 68-year-old Leroy Mason (pictured) got peeved when the smoke alarms starting blaring as he was cooking dinner. So he did what any rational person would in the situation: grabbed his 20-gauge shotgun and fired two rounds into the offending device.
When police arrived on scene and took his shotgun, Mason then brandished a handgun. He’s charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.
