CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Some people are annoyed by door-to-door salespeople, but police said one Clarksville homeowner took it too far.
He answered his door to an alarm salesman while holding a shotgun and then fired it so the guy would get off his property.
Clarksville police charged 27-year-old Kenneth Spurlock with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.
Police say Spurlock answered his door Tuesday holding a shotgun and asked the 20-year-old salesman to leave. When he didn't immediately leave, police said the homeowner fired a shot into the ground 7 to 10 feet from where the salesman was standing.
The salesman left after the homeowner threatened to fire the shotgun again.
