Man fires shots into trailer


A Cedar Hills man was reportedly intoxicated Saturday when he allegedly fired three shots from a revolver into a travel trailer.

Joe Edward Helm, 64, was asleep on a couch at his home in the 8600 block of East Horseback Trail when deputies with the Mohave County Sheriff's Office arrived. A revolver was on the floor next to him, according to MCSO spokeswoman Trish Carter.

Helms reportedly told deputies he fired three shots into bushes, but the reporting party - his wife - said she heard three shots hit the trailer, which was parked near the home.

Helms was arrested and charged with a felony count of disorderly conduct with a weapon.
