LEICESTER — A Scottsville hunter was so far off his mark while hunting in Leicester he struck a home and not the deer that he was aiming for.
According to a press release from Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty, Jay Campbell, 32, was arrested for Reckless Endangerment in the 2nd Degree, and Criminal Mischief in the 4th degree, after an investigation that alleges he shot a Leicester home on River Road.
Campbell was taken into custody, processed and released with pending court action. Assisting in the investigation was Investigator Daniel Rittenhouse, Deputy Ross Gerace, Evidence Technician Deputy Michael Williams, and En-Con Police Officer Brian Wade.
With the opening of gun season, Sheriff Dougherty stated that hunters need to be safe in their actions, know their targets, be able to see them, and use caution in their actions.
