26-year-old Elliot Bradford-Chesebrough was booked Saturday after allegedly firing several shots in the air with an AK-style rifle. Police were given a description of a male with long hair that was shooting in the air. They saw a male that matched the description getting out of the driver’s side of a truck with the key in the ignition. They immediately noticed alcohol on his breath when speaking to him. Through the driver’s side window, they could see an AK-style rifle sitting on top of a pile of items behind the driver’s seat but within arm’s reach. Officers also saw several boxes of Ammo scattered around the truck, including a box of steel-cased Red Army Standard .223 sitting on the driver’s seat. After seeing all this, the officers asked if there were any weapons in the vehicle, to which Bradford replied there was only a revolver. A witness on the scene said they saw him fire several rounds from across the street. Officers searched the area and saw and found several spent steel-cased .223 that matched the ammo in the truck. Bradford performed poorly on sobriety tests and was transported to booking without incident.
