Police: Paranormal investigator arrested for shooting at 'ghost'

TOLLAND, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man who told police he was a paranormal investigator faces several charges after firing shots in his house at what he told police may have been a ghost.

Christian Devaux, 25, of Tolland, is due in court on Sept. 11 on charges including the illegal discharge of a firearm, making a false statement to police, second-degree reckless endangerment, misusing an emergency call, and disorderly conduct.

Devaux put two bullet holes in his wall on July 26, initially reporting the incident as an attempted break-in, police said. He later told police he believes the intruder was actually a spirit.

Devaux, who is free on $5,000 bond, did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment. State police told the Journal Inquirer of Manchester that Devaux had made a similar report back in 2011.
