Man charged with BB gun destruction

NEW CASTLE — A West Side man has been arrested for allegedly firing a BB gun at a car downtown.

New Castle police have charged Chris Shaner, 18, of 315 Bell Ave. with criminal mischief.

Officers were called to the parking lot of a restaurant off West Washington Street regarding a man who had been looking into the windows of cars. They found broken-out windows and scratched paint on two vehicles in the lot that apparently had been shot with a BB gun.

Another officer had stopped two men nearby, one of whom was Shaner. He said he had seen a BB gun lying about five feet away and Shaner had BBs in his pants pocket. The officer also found a bookbag with the name Chris on it and containing BBs and CO2 canisters for a BB gun.

Police said Shaner admitted to shooting out the car windows and apologized for it.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
