Ga. Man Arrested for Shooting Mistletoe Out of Tree


An unusual holiday tradition has landed a Georgia man in jail.

61-year-old William Robinson was arrested this past weekend after someone reported him shooting mistletoe out of trees near North DeKalb Mall.

Robinson said he was preparing for a Christmas party the next day and wasn't afraid he could hurt anyone.

He faces two misdemeanor charges - reckless conduct and discharging a weapon. He says he plans to pay the fines.
