NEW HAVEN (AP) -- A Vermont man who says he fired some shots to stop a man from cutting his neighbor's trees has been accused of reckless endangerment.

Police say 72-year-old David Milson of New Haven discharged nine to 12 rounds on Sunday in the direction of 26-year-old Bradly Sprague. They were less than 500 feet apart.

Milson told police he was attempting to get Sprague's attention to get him to stop cutting his neighbor's trees that separated the two properties.

Sprague was not hurt.
