ORLANDO, Florida - A 21-year-old Oviedo man is facing several serious gun charges after getting drunk and shooting his AR-15 style rifle into his neighbor's backyard, shattering her sliding glass door.
Seminole County Sheriff's Office spokesmen Bob Kealing says the startled victim called 911 around 8:30 a.m. yesterday to report she was sleeping on her couch when she was awakened to the sound of breaking glass.
When deputies arrived at the home on Shadow Creek Circle, they located the suspect 21-year-old Liam Portway standing in front, which is directly behind where the victim lives.
Deputies say Portway appeared to be drunk and was swaying and slurring his words when they questioned him about the shooting.
Upon further investigation, several guns were found in Portway's house, including an AR-15 style rifle, which matched up with the bullet found near his neighbor's back door.
Deputies arrested and booked Portway into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility.
He's facing charges of firing into a home, firing a weapon on public or residential property, use of a firearm under the influence of alcohol, and property damage.
