Monrovia Man Gets 18 Months For Hitting Car With Bullet
FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Monrovia man is serving 18 months in jail for firing a rifle at a passing car and shattering one of its windows.
David Keeney, 23, was sentenced Wednesday in Frederick. He pleaded guilty last month to reckless endangerment, malicious destruction of property and cocaine possession.
The judge suspended another three and a half years of prison time.
Authorities say Keeney fired a .22-caliber bullet through the right front window of a random vehicle from the yard of his rural home in July. The driver’s arm was cut by shards of glass.
Prosecutors say Keeney was high on drugs and alcohol at the time. They say he has nearly completed a substance abuse program during pretrial confinement.
He was also ordered to pay $370 in restitution to the victim.
