A town of Superior man was arrested for allegedly shooting a firearm toward the Pattison Golf Course while intoxicated.

Glen Robert Larson, 56, faces a single count of operating a firearm while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, in Douglas County Circuit Court.

According to a news release on the sheriff’s office website:

Douglas County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the area of the Pattison Golf Course on County Highway B in the town of Superior around 11 a.m. July 6 on a report of an intoxicated male shooting firearms toward the golf course.

Deputies arrived and found spent .22 caliber rounds and shotgun shells in the yard, and a pop can with holes in it near the end of the driveway. A shotgun was also found leaning against the house near the back door.

Larson was found in the garage. He had a similar type live shotgun shell in his shirt pocket. According to the criminal complaint filed Monday, he was in an obviously intoxicated state and readily admitted to shooting the gun as it was his right to do so on the Fourth of July. A preliminary breath test showed Larson had an alcohol concentration of .311.

Larson was arrested Sunday. He made an initial appearance last week and was released on a $750 signature bond.

The South Range man was ordered not to use or possess any firearm and not to consume any alcohol. His next court appearance is in August.
