Charges: Maplewood man used gun
to oust bat from home

Last update: August 23, 2010 - 5:21 PM

A Maplewood man found out the hard way
that when it comes to getting rid of vermin, a
gun probably is not the best choice --
particularly when the critter is in your house.

By the time he was done shooting, a bat was
wounded and an adjoining vacant townhouse
suffered three bullet holes in its freshly
painted walls, a dent in a metal closet door
and a dent in the stove, according to charges
filed Friday in Ramsey County District Court.

As a result, Cedric R. Newton, 52, has been
charged with reckless discharge of a firearm,
a felony. He will make his first court
appearance Sept. 20.

The charges said Newton used a .38-caliber
revolver to get rid of the bat last month,

A Maplewood police officer was sent to the
2300 block of Loudin Lane on July 25 to
speak with the property manager, who
showed the officer the damage, the complaint
said.

When police talked to Newton, he said that
about midnight on July 24, a bat had come
into his home and "attacked" his wife, the
complaint said. Newton said he got his gun
and fired several times at the bat, eventually
wounding it.

"Newton told police that he had the presence
of mind to have his wife go upstairs while he
shot at the bat, but apparently gave no
consideration to the surrounding
townhomes," the complaint said.

No one answered the phone Monday
afternoon at the Newton home.
