Police: Louisville Man Threatened Neighbor with AK-47

By  | 

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Police say a dispute over shooting at rabbits with an air gun in a Louisville yard quickly became a threat with an AK-47.

Louisville police charged Rodney Wold with first-degree wanton endangerment.

Police say Wold saw a neighbor shooting rabbits with an air gun from his back porch. Wold went inside, police say, and came back out with an AK-47 loaded with 19 rounds.

Police say Wold pointed the assault rifle at his neighbor and told him, "If you want to hunt something, you can hunt men."

When police arrived, Wold let them search his home and the AK-47 was found between the mattress and box spring of a bed.

Louisville jail records did not list an attorney for Wold on Thursday.
