LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is behind bars after police say he fired shots on his porch on Greenwood Avenue.

Police say they were responding to a burglary run at a different home when they heard Robin Wayne Cosby firing a 22-caliber long rifle.

Thinking it was simply an airgun, an officer asked Cosby to stop firing the weapon. Police say Cosby acknowledged the officer's request, then went back inside and got a larger weapon and began firing that gun.

Police then arrested him. Cosby admitted to being drunk and firing the weapons. He's charged with the wanton endangerment of an officer.
