Arizona police: 3 accused of firing shots at saguaro cactus

PHOENIX — Police in Phoenix say three men have been arrested for allegedly firing shots at a saguaro cactus.

They say 29-year-old Forte Nichols, 38-year-old Kyonnie Hodge and 23-year-old Aaron Bradford were taken into custody Monday and booked on suspicion of various charges.

Police say officers responded to a call of shots fired and determined the men were in the area shooting at a cactus.

They say Nicholas had his 1-year old son with him in a seat carrier.

Officers detained the three suspects and found the handgun in the child’s seat carrier underneath the boy.

They say the men are accused of child endangerment and misconduct involving weapons.

It was unclear Tuesday if any of the three men has a lawyer yet who can speak on their behalf.
