An Evansville man was arrested on Monday after being accused of firing a gun inside a home.
Police say they were sent to a home on Norman Avenue just before 2:00 a.m. on Monday after someone called 911 about a person with a gun.
The 911 caller said he had been asleep at the home with the woman who lived there when he was woken up by 33-year-old Evan Hodges, who hit him in the head with a pistol.
According to the man who called 911, Hodges told him to leave the home and pointed the pistol at him before firing a gun into the floor, right next to where he was standing.
Officers were told that the woman had been recently separated from her husband, who was identified as Hodges. She said that she had asked the other man to stay with her because Hodges had battered her the night before, according to police.
Once officers got to the house, they said that Hodges was no longer there. EPD says that officers pulled Hodges over after they spotted him driving and that they found a gun in the center console of his car.
When Hodges was interviewed at EPD Headquarters, police say he admitted to firing the gun into the floor of the home after he "walked into his house and found a strange man in his bed." They say he also told them that he had recently been staying with a friend.
He was booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail on charges of Battery While Armed with a Deadly Weapon and Intimidation.
