— Police arrested a man who they say got drunk and fired shots outside a Nashville home early Monday.

Authorities said they received calls about shots being fired off Birchwood Drive around 2 a.m. They determined that Paris Jason Lopez had had too much to drink and started firing a gun into the air.

No one was injured or was in any danger.

Police said they got Lopez to sleep and waited at the home with him. When he woke up, he surrendered peacefully.

Lopez was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He was placed in the Nash County Jail under a $7,500 bond.
