Man arrested for 'test firing' gun


A Valdosta man was behind bars Friday night for firing a gun into the air early Friday morning.

Police say 31 year-old Caleb Covington was visiting someone he knew near the 700 block of Lake Park Road around 3 a.m. He decided to test fire the other person's gun into the air, and a concerned citizen called police when they heard the shot.

No one was hurt. Covington is charged with firing a gun within city limits.
