A massive teen party grew out of control at an Ohio man’s property, so he grabbed a shotgun and fired into the air, sending the crowd running to their cars, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
The property owner, 42-year-old Travis Turkal, was arrested on Saturday, Aug. 6, the sheriff’s office said. He is facing charges of endangering children, using weapons while intoxicated and aggravated menacing.
An estimated 200 teenagers gathered at Turkal’s property in Rayland, WTOV reported.
His son threw the party, but as word spread on social media, more and more teens flocked to the address, WTRF reported. The larger it grew, the more chaotic it became — eventually turning violent, witnesses told sheriff’s deputies.
