A caller to OPIE AND ANTHONY's show was arrested for shooting a rifle in the woods behind his LONG ISLAND house while on the phone with the show.
THOMAS YOUNG, 30, of MELVILLE, NY was arrested after another listener, a neighbor, heard him allegedly say "I'm going to kill a tree," followed by the sound of five gunshots. YOUNG was charged with a misdemeanor of discharging a firearm in a prohibited area against town law; no one was hurt.
