BAY MINETTE, Ala. — A 74-year-old man who police say fired shots at a public bus in Alabama has been arrested.

AL.com reports the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office arrested James Feola of Bay Minette on Tuesday evening. The sheriff’s office says deputies were called around noon and were told that a man had fired two shots at an occupied public bus. Deputies say no one was struck.

Feola retreated into his home and was later arrested as he attempted to escape from the back of the residence.

Deputies identified Feola as a suspect because of an earlier phone call in which he allegedly threatened to shoot up the Department of Human Resources if he didn’t receive his food stamps.

He faces two counts of reckless endangerment. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
