The police returned the next day and arrested the home owner because his life was not being threatened when the shot was fired. I can't remember the exact charges but it is something along the lines of discharging a firearm in city limits.
If the need arises to draw my weapon and the perp takes off, I'm certainly not discharging my firearm in any direction. That's pretty stupid IMO.
