College Station Man Jailed After Dog Annoys Him

A College Station man is charged with deadly conduct after allegedly shooting his shotgun near a neighbor's home.

Police say Gary Bingham, 40, was angry with his neighbor's dog because it barked incessantly.

Residents in the 1300 block of Airline Drive called 9-1-1 about 8:45 p.m., complaining that a man was standing in a nearby yard pointing a shotgun at a dog.

Officers converged on the area and made contact with the suspect.

Due to the reckless nature of his actions and having fired the weapon in the direction of a habitation, the suspect was taken into custody for Deadly Conduct.

If Bingham is found guilty of the Third Degree Felony, he could spend up to 10 years in prison.
