When police talked to Newton, he said that about midnight on July 24, a bat had come into his home and "attacked" his wife, the complaint said. Newton said he got his gun and fired several times at the bat, eventually wounding it.

"Newton told police that he had the presence of mind to have his wife go upstairs while he shot at the bat, but apparently gave no consideration to the surrounding townhomes," the complaint said.

Guys in action, indeed.

Never bring a gun to a bat attack.

Cunning plan.

These vampires are always asking for trouble.

nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh BATMAN! POW!

It won't go down that way when WE have guns.

The Mets' bats have also been shot :(

Ain't that the truth, trustf8.

The poor _ets never catch a break. Whether, basketball, football, or baseball, you can count on them to blow it spectacularly.

Only in MinneSOta

It's hard to hit a flying bat with a .38; no wonder it took several shots. He should have used a shotgun or a grenade.

When tennis rackets are outlawed, only outlaws...

What? He used a gun? Well, never mind then.
