Pellet Gun Arrest

A holiday gift lands a 13-year-old Floridian in jail.

Herby Paul playfully fired his Christmas pellet gun at a neighbor.

Officials say Paul was playing with 11-year-old Alan Eugene when the horseplay turned violent.

Paul fired two shots at his friend's head.

One shot missed, but the second shot pierced Alan’s eye, nearly blinding him.

Paul learned the hard way about the dangers of his kidding around when he faced a Florida judge who extended his jail time at a juvenile detention facility.

Paul’s relatives say they were hoping for a home arrest judgment, but they now realize that a pellet gun can be classified as a dangerous weapon.
