Tonight my friend was taken to jail. The guy is a good guy but has a lot of family issues. We talked a pistol out of his mouth once already. Tonight he seemed that he was havin an ok time. Me and some friends were hangin out at the river behind my house. He took off to drive and cut some donuts before we could stop him our knew what he was doing. He got stuck and I pulled him out. Now looking at it maybe I shouldnt have. Anyway I got him out and he took off. We thought he drove down the river to the other party a few hundred yards away. Instead he drove home and got a 9mm and a .270. He came back and discharged 5 rounds from the pistol into the riverbed. After he discharged the rounds he dropped the pistol. I picked it up and cleared the weapon. At this point we hauled butt back to the house, not knowing he had a rifle. None of us wanted any part in it. Maybe I made another mistake there but right now I really dont know. After we got to the house he showed up. I took his keys. He wondered around for awhile. We were talkin and didnt see where he went. He came around from the truck with a rifle. I grabbed the rifle and cleared it as well. He walked away. We then searched his car and took out 3 more kinves and some ammo. A friend of mine called the police who arrived shortly after. The guy walked into my house after I took the rifle but I didnt know this. The officer and I walked into the house so I could give her the pistol and I saw him. I took the officer into my room and told her that the guy in the recliner was him and then gave her the pistol. She cuffed and then frisked him in my living room and then put him in a sqad car. Another officer arrived on location and talked to me and then the others about what happened. While he was talking to us, the guy admitted to the other officer that he was upset over family issues. The 2 officers got our info and talked to us. They said it was the right thing for us to have called them. I am inclined to belive them on that but I really hope that he will be ok and get the help he needs. After the cops left I started thinking that instead of him firing those rounds into the river, that he could have hurt my friends and then himself. That bothers me. I am not one to give up on people. I'm really not sure what to do after the police let him out tomorrow of the next couple of days. I know for a fact that a counsler is gointo come down and talke with him. Its really up to the counsler what happens to him at this point. He may get out tommorrow and he may not. But im not sure how to address him when he does get out. I really dont know what to do. Thanks yall for this venue to get my feelings out because with my friends I'm always the one who knows what to do and they look to me for guideance in the situation. I just need to prepair myself to be there for them no matter what hanppens. Thanks again yall.
