Charles Michael Bourdon was minding his own business, allegedly doing some business Thursday in a bush in Hemet when a neighbor objected to the nature of the business.

21-year-old Bourdon was apparently urinating on the foilage, according to The Riverside Press-Enterprise.

As the neighbor complained, Bourdon reached into his pocket, pulled out a .25 pistol, and allegedly relieved the weapon of several bullets into the neighbor's apartment building.

Police were summoned, Bourdon tossed the firearm into (hopefully different) bushes, and was eventually apprehended. He is now being charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

Bourdon is no stranger to the long arm of the law. Police discovered that Bourdon had an existing warrant for resisting arrest and battery on a police officer. He is being held on $1 million bail.
