Man Arrested After Shooting Gun Near Other Campers In Siskiyou County

A camper at a Siskiyou County campground was arrested for a shooting incident. Sunday afternoon deputies were called to the R-Ranch in Hornbrook. They were told that William Dean Vaught had been drinking and was shooting his gun across a walking path at the campground near other guests. When he was confronted by another camper, he allegedly pointed his gun at them and threatened to shoot. Deputies got help from Fish and Wildlife Officers and the CHP as they detained Vaught and seized a semi-automatic tactical style rifle, a semi-auto pistol and spent casings. Vaught was booked into jail for brandishing and negligent discharge.
