A North Chattanooga man was arrested for reckless endangerment after police said he fired seven shots through a door after an altercation with another man. Both had been drinking.

The charge was brought against Billy G. Sanders, 32, of 311 Houser St.

Michael Pyburn said Sanders shot several rounds at him after he told him to leave, then he returned.

Sanders said he shot at the ground to scare Pyburn.

Police noticed the seven bullet holes in the door. A gun was found hidden in an air vent. It had 18 rounds still in it.

Pyburn was also taken into custody for public drunk.

Police checked out a car burglary on 14th Avenue. A man advised officers there have been a number of car break-ins in that neighborhood.

He said he saw two black males carrying a green toolbox.

Officers stopped Patrick Watts and another man on 16th Avenue. The witness said Watts had been carrying the toolbox, which was found to contain an electric sander, some tools and a car radio. Also stuffed inside were two new packages of toilet paper.

Officers checked the neighborhood and found where a car had been broken into and the radio removed. The female owner looked at the radio found in the toolbox and said it was hers. It was returned to her.
