Sugarloaf shooting 'moronic'
A Christchurch man was arrested for firing shots from a sawn-off shotgun near the Summit Rd on Friday night.
Police were called to the Sugarloaf about 9.50pm.
The man, 28, was breath-tested and allegedly recorded 583 micrograms of alcohol per litre of breath.
Sergeant Gary Manch said firing guns in a public place was ''moronic''.
''The bullets have to go somewhere,'' he said.
The man is due to appear in court charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, resisting police and drink driving.
