Bellaire Resident Shoots At Son Over Lawn Mowing Argument

June 1, 2010

Craig Peldo, a 63-year-old Bellaire resident, was arrested for shooting at his son on May 28.

Peldo and his son were arguing about mowing the lawn when he pulled out a .22 caliber handgun and fired a shot at the ground, said Officer Tim Quimby.

The bullet ricocheted off the driveway and grazed his son’s leg, but did not enter his body.

A neighbor heard gunshots and called the police. Peldo’s son was treated at the scene but refused transport to the hospital, Quimby said.

Peldo was arrested and charged with deadly conduct.
