Listen, it happens to everyone. You’re home alone. It’s late at night. You hear something bump and rattle in the dark…so you open fire on it?
That’s what 25 year old Christian Devaux of Tolland did on July 26th, putting two bullet holes in his house because of a supposed intruder in his house. Which, okay. That’s something that everyone can get around, if you think someone who shouldn’t be in your house is roaming around where they shouldn’t. But…but.. we’re just getting started.
Devaux then changed his statement from something totally rational to one that police couldn’t wrap their heads around. He told state police that he had seen a ghost and decided shooting it was the best option.
The sad part is, this is the second time Christian has done this. Back in 2011, this self proclaimed paranormal investigator had thought ghosts were breaking into his home.
I’m no paranormal expert, but trying to unload your .38 at a ghost isn’t exactly “investigating.”
He’s due in court on Sept. 11 on charges including the illegal discharge of a firearm, making a false statement to police, second-degree reckless endangerment, misusing an emergency call, and disorderly conduct.
