Man fires at cars
A man firing at cars with an air pistol sparked a heavy response from police last weekend. Members of the public reported seeing the man hiding in a restaurant toilet on Jervois Rd, Ponsonby, with the gun and firing at vehicles about 7.10pm on Sunday. Detectives and six other police units responded. Nobody was injured and the man was arrested at the scene, Detective Senior Sergeant Peter Florence says. The man has been charged with discharging an airgun with careless disregard and was due to appear in the Auckland District Court on Monday.
