SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A Marine is jailed today for allegedly firing a gun at a picture of his wife in the backyard of their home in Vista, according to a San Diego County sheriff's sergeant.
James Green, 23, was upset at the pending breakup of his marriage when he fired a gun at the picture around 1:10 p.m. Saturday at 810 Galaxy Drive, Sgt. Robert Smith said.
His wife and her mother fled the house and went to his in-laws' residence in Temecula, and Green was arrested by Riverside County authorities after he followed and caused a disturbance, according to Smith.
He said San Diego County sheriff's deputies took custody of Green later on Saturday and recovered a handgun, ammunition and the damaged picture.
Green allegedly admitted firing the shot, and was booked on suspicion of illegally discharging a firearm, Smith said.
