New York Man Declares War on Neighbors, Fires Unloaded Cannon at Their Home

New York Man Declares War on Neighbors, Fires Unloaded Cannon at Their HomeImage via Chautauqua County Sheriff's Department.

Brian Malta settles disputes the old-fashioned way. 

The 52-year-old Kiatone, N.Y. resident stands accused of firing the Civil War-era cannon that he conveniently owns at his neighbors' home. He has some sense, though: The cannon wasn't loaded, he simply used wadding and powder charges.

Authorities say Malta had a long-standing dispute with his neighbors, but wouldn't provide details. No one was injured, but Malta was arrested on Wednesday and charged with harassment and menacing.
