UNIONTOWN, PA.–A history buff who recreates firearms from old wars accidentally fired a one-kilogram cannonball through the wall of his neighbour's home.
William Maser, 54, fired a cannonball Wednesday evening outside his home that ricocheted and hit a house almost 400 metres away.
The cannonball, about 4 centimetres in diameter, smashed through a window and a wall before landing in a closet. Authorities say nobody was hurt.
Maser was charged by state police with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.
Maser apologized on local TV and said he will stop shooting firearms on his property.
