One of these days, Alice... (via AZ Family)

An attempted moon shooting took place in Prescott, AZ Friday night, leading to the arrest of Cameron Frank Read. 

According to AZ Family, Read's girlfriend and her son were in the Prescott home when Read, high on marijuana, saw Haley's comet and became inspired to shoot the moon with his firearm. Unfortunately, science has not created a household weapon that can reach that menacing melon ball in the sky so, despite Read's optimism, he shot out a couple windows instead, leading his girlfriend to lose faith in his marksmanship and call the police. Read resisted arrest and swore he wasn't trying to hurt anyone. He just wanted to get that moon.
