Neighboring Townhomes Hold Still Just Long Enough for Drunk Man's Marksmanship to Impress Drunk Woman

A Minnesota man has been arrested for using a powerful compound bow to fire arrows into the sides of his neighbors' houses. According to local police and prosecutors, the act was fueled by that timeless recipe for success that lurks behind most landmark achievements: alcohol and the desire to impress a woman.

According to the Associated Press, Kyle Kenneth Fletcher's female friend told police that the pair had been up drinking all night before Fletcher took his bow and arrow onto the deck of his Burnsville townhome to "play Rambo," by firing arrows into the siding of other homes in his housing complex. Minnesota's Pioneer Press adds that, according to the Dakota County prosecutor's charges, Fletcher appeared "extremely intoxicated" when questioned, "as did his female friend."

The 30-year-old Fletcher was charged with felony first-degree criminal damage to property. Sounds like someone also had their heart stolen on that townhouse deck, but she's not pressing charges.
