Man charged with shooting corncobs at neighbor's home

WESTERLY, R.I. — A 50-year-old Westerly man is charged with shooting corncobs at his neighbor's home.

The Westerly Sun reports (http://bit.ly/2ctr3n9 ) that Jeffrey Osella was arrested Tuesday night. Police say he answered his door shirtless and had corn kernels stuck to his chest.

Police say Osella used a potato gun to shoot corncobs at his neighbor's house, which is up for sale. The gun is made of PVC pipe and uses a light accelerant such as hair spray that can be ignited.

Police say Osella and his neighbor have long-running disputes.

Osella is charged with disorderly conduct and firing in a compact area. He's free on bail and is to be arraigned Friday.

A phone number for Osella could not be found. It's not clear if he has a lawyer.
