Paranormal Investigator Charged for Shooting at Ghost
TOLLAND, Conn. – You’re home alone. It’s late at night. You hear something bump and rattle in the dark ... so you open fire. That’s what self-proclaimed paranormal investigator Christian Devaux did last July 26, putting two bullet holes in the side of his house. Which is okay, if someone had broken into his home. That’s something anyone can understand.
But 25-year-old Devaux didn’t think he was being burgled ... he was shooting at ghosts. He told state police he had seen a ghost and decided shooting it was the best option. Never mind that ghosts are already dead!
The sad part is, this is the second time Devaux has shot at ghosts. Back in 2011, he thought ghosts were breaking into his house and you guessed it ... he opened fire.
He is now charged with illegal discharge of a firearm, making a false statement to police, second-degree reckless endangerment, misusing 911 and disorderly conduct. Devaux is free on $5,000 bond and declined to comment when called by WVIT.
