Man calls in fake fire so the F.D. will get his cat out of a tree, then...
KINGMAN, Ariz. Aug 19, 2006 (AP)— A man angry at firefighters who refused to rescue a cat from a tree was arrested after he started shooting at the fire crew, officials said.
Jeffrey Cullen, 58, was charged with four felony counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, Mohave County Sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter said.
A three-person fire crew went to Cullen's home Thursday when he reported a tree fire, but found no blaze, Hualapai Valley Fire Department spokeswoman Sandy Edwards said.
Instead, Cullen told firefighters he wanted a cat rescued from his tree and knew they would only respond to a fire call, Edwards said. A battalion chief told Cullen to call animal control or wait for the cat to get hungry and come down.
Cullen apparently didn't like the response, Edwards said.
"He went back into the house, got a small black revolver and came outside shooting," she said.
The firefighters and a 12-year-old boy who had come to see the fire truck ran for their lives, Edwards said. No one was injured.
Deputies arrested Cullen after a brief standoff and struggle.

them kitty bones
i wonder if the guy was committed after - sounds a bit mentalhttp://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion
