New Haven police arrested a man after he shot his wife's car three times New Year's Day.
According to police, Charles Williams, 35, of West Haven is getting a divorce from his estranged wife and had recently met someone new. Police said on Tuesday William's wife called him several times harassing him.
Just after 5:30 p.m., Williams drove to their Orchard Street home and confronted her. Once his wife saw his car in the driveway, she demanded that he leave.
But before he did, he shot three times into the hood of her car, police said.
Williams, who has a long criminal history, was arrested by officers patrolling the area.
Officers seized a Smith & Wesson .22-caliber semi-automatic handgun, six live rounds and three spent shell casings as well as two bags of crack cocaine.
Williams was charged with unlawful discharge, criminal possession of a firearm, first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree criminal mischief, first-degree threatening, possession of narcotics and that within 1500 feet of a school.
Police said Williams is prohibited from having a gun because he is a convicted felon.
