    FRISCO, Colo. - A man who wanted to fire off bottlerockets but grabbed his gun instead and fired into the sky was arrested Thursday after stray bullets hit two homes.

    Nathan Rock, 27, was faces misdemeanor charges of unlawful use of a weapon and reckless endangerment, the Summit County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

    Rock told police he had some cocktails earlier in the evening and was looking for bottlerockets. Coming up empty, Rock said he shot several rounds from his handgun into the air from his porch and driveway.

    An officer on routine patrol heard the shots, and police later found Rock asleep in his bedroom with a handgun in the room. He was taken into custody and was being held at the Summit County Jail on $2,500 bond.

    "I was alarmed," said resident Susan Smith said. "I started looking outside. I was thinking, 'Is it a moose? Is it a bear? Is it somebody escaping?'"

    Aren't bottlerockets long slender objects that you stick into a bottle and light the fuse to watch it fire off? How can you take a gun instead?

      Looks like he wanted to make a bang and couldn't find a legal means to do so.
