Read:
"Tom Gerhardt, KX News:

A Texas man is charged after firing his gun through another mans clothing outside a Williston bar.

An affidavit says 36-year-old John Polk heckled a group of men exiting a bar Saturday night.

As they argued Polk fired a handgun into the air.

One or more people from the group attempted to tackle Polk and as they attempted to take his gun he fired it again.

The bullet hit a cell phone in one of the man's pants pockets and exited through his shirt.

Officers found Polk injured on the ground when they arrived.

Polk is charged with reckless endangerment and discharging his gun in city limits."
