CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Ky. (WKRN) — A man suspected of firing multiple gunshots at people over the weekend in Christian County has been arrested.

Michael Robertson, 33, was booked into the Christian County jail on charges including wanton endangerment, evidence tampering and drug possession.

According to an arrest citation, Christian County deputies responded around 7:30 p.m. Saturday to a home on Billy Goat Hill Road, about ten miles north of Hopkinsville, where three victims stated Robertson stopped at the end of their driveway, then yelled and cussed at them.

As Robertson drove away, he fired three or four rounds at the victims, the paperwork states.

Deputies said they were able to stop Robertson and found a meth pipe in his vehicle along with a spent shell casing and three live rounds, all matching a casing found at the scene.

When Robertson was transported to the Christian County jail, authorities said they located a small bag of suspected meth hidden in his pants.

There was also an open alcohol bottle in the truck but no handgun, investigators said.

Deputies said they searched the path Robertson traveled after leaving the residence on Billy Goat Hill Road and located a handgun on the side of the road with a live round that matched the other rounds found.

Robertson was out on bond in Trigg County for similar charges with release conditions of no alcohol, drugs or firearm possession, the sheriff’s office added.
