A Cookeville man was taken into police custody earlier this week after he fired shots at his dog for eating a portion of his couch, endangering two nearby workers.

The Herald Citizen reported the incident involving Todd Carpenter occurred on Tuesday afternoon at a home located on Shipley Road.

The newspaper reported the bullets went through his wall and through a neighboring apartment wall, where two painters were working.

Neither the workers nor canine was injured in the incident.

Responding officers recovered two guns from Carpenter's home.

Carpenter is charged with reckless endangerment and was jailed on a $5,000 bond.

He is scheduled to appear in court on July 8.
