Johnson City police: Man jailed after firing shots on West Ninth

William Allen Letcher

A man fired shots in the air after an argument at his cousin's house on West Ninth Avenue early Saturday morning, resulting in his arrest, police said.

William A. Letcher, 22, 408 W. Ninth Ave., was arrested after the incident just after midnight.

Police said Letcher had gone uninvited to his cousin's house at 402 W. Ninth, resulting in an argument. He went down the street to his own residence, got a handgun, walked outside and fired two shots in the air.

He was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $10,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance Monday.

Letcher was arrested in November on evading arrest and domestic assault charges and in November 2012 on domestic assault and contempt of court charges.
