Stoned man shoots at ‘alien’

A Baraboo man police say shot a hole in his floor after seeing an alien while stoned on marijuana sat jailed Tuesday awaiting the next step in his case.

Jonathan D. Popple, 26, appeared in Sauk County Circuit Court on Monday via video conference link from the Sauk County Law Enforcement Center lockup. He was facing felony counts of possession of pot with intent to deliver and possessing a gun while intoxicated stemming from an incident Saturday afternoon, according to court documents.

About 2:30 p.m. police were called to a house on Ninth Street after someone reported hearing a gunshot inside, according to the criminal complaint.

Officers spoke to Popple, who said he had been smoking pot since getting up that day and was cleaning his gun in his bedroom. He said he initially thought the weapon’s safety was on.

Popple told police he had the sense he was standing on a rock and looked down to see an alien he had seen in a movie, according to the complaint. Popple then tried to shoot the alien: The gun went off and a bullet went through the floor into the basement, the complaint states.
