February 23, 2012
A prosecutor has dropped a criminal charge against a New Hampshire man who helped catch a suspected burglar by firing his gun into the ground.
Sixty-one-year-old Dennis Fleming of Farmington was charged Saturday with reckless conduct for firing his gun in a residential area. No one was hurt.
Fleming arrived home to find his house had been burglarized. Police say he spotted 27-year-old Joseph Hebert climbing out the window of a neighbor’s home. Fleming yelled “Freeze!’’ and discharged his .38 caliber handgun into the ground near Hebert. He held him at gunpoint until police arrived. Hebert was charged with burglary and drug possession.
