I'd like to know what these charges above actually mean against Robert Horton Epperson. ***Discharge Firearm, Missile in/at Unocc. School and Hunting or Discharge of Firearms in Certain Places The public was told that this idiot didn't fire a weapon outside of his own house- he's shoothing at a School????????????

What the police charge a person with can be changed in court. Horton no longer has that charge against him, according to court records. These charges, though included on the latest arrest log, seem to be a corrected version from last week's log where his charges were mistakenly left blank. Do not read these charges as an update to his current case, but instead as a late initial report from FCPD.
