A Juneau man who allegedly fired a weapon while drunk in downtown Juneau early Saturday morning may go before a jury in July.
Caleb Smith, 21, appeared in Juneau District Court on Tuesday.
He faces two counts of misconduct involving weapons. The charges are for allegedly discharging a firearm with a blood alchohol content of .153, or nearly twice over the legal limit of intoxication, and for firing a weapon near buildings in the Second and Franklin Street area. Smith allegedly had as many as three firearms in his possession.
Until the court case is resolved, Smith is not to possess firearms. He’s also not to consume alcohol or go into a bar or liquor store. An exception was made for Smith’s workplace. Smith told District Court Judge Thomas Nave that he works at Walmart and some of his duties include working with inventory in the liquor store.
