Franklin County Sheriff deputies arrested Dale Bryant Farris, 65, of Estill Springs after he allegedly shot at juveniles who were toilet papering a neighbor's home. 

Farris told deputies he was awoken by his wife after she saw the kids running on a field across from their home. He then grabbed a 20-gauge shotgun and reportedly fired, striking a 15-year-old in the foot, knee, thigh and waist. 

The owner of the home which was toilet papered did not take any legal action, but Farris was arrested under $125,000 bond.
