— The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office has charged a Fayetteville man with shooting his wife in the foot during an argument at their home. 

Police say William Nicholas Hogue, 55, shot his wife in the foot with a shotgun after they got into a fight on the way home from a bar. When the couple entered their home, Hogue threatened his wife, Robin, before pulling the trigger. 

Hogue is being held at the Cumberland County Detention Center without bond. He is being charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to inflict serious injury.

Hogue's wife sustained a serious injury to her left foot and had surgery. She remains at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. 

Police said Hogue will make his first appearance in court Friday afternoon.

    And if she forgives him charge her her with being under the influence. Thought there were laws against discharging a weapon in the city limits anyway

    Just kidding, coulda been much worse hopefully she has a full recovery and he gets the help he needs. Im sure it was terrifying for her no matter where she was shot.

    "Why not charge him with Intent to Kill ?? I think if you pull the trigger at someone, you're intent is to kill. Glad this guys shot was WAY off!
