Man fires cannon into neighbors home

A Pennsylvania

history buff who recreates firearms from old wars accidentally fired a

2-pound cannonball through the wall of his neighbor’s home in Uniontown, Pa.

William Maser,

54, fired a cannonball Wednesday evening outside his home in Georges

Township that ricocheted and hit a house 400 yards away. The

cannonball, about two inches in diameter, smashed through a window and

a wall before landing in a closet. Authorities said nobody was hurt.
State police charged Maser with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.

No one answered the phone Friday at Maser’s home. He told WPXI-TV

that recreating 19th-century cannons is a longtime hobby. He said he is

sorry and he will stop shooting them on his property, about 35 miles

southeast of Pittsburgh. – [source]
