Crown Point, IN – An Indiana man is accused of forcibly seizing a woman’s firearm and firing shots into the ground early Monday.

According to Crown Point Police, the alarming incident, filled with potential danger and fear, swiftly resulted in the man’s arrest on charges of criminal recklessness, along with additional misdemeanors.

It happened on Morningside Drive around 2 a.m. where Isaac Dutton, a resident of Hammond, reportedly engaged in a heated argument with a female victim about their relationship.
