A man is charged with disorderly conduct after police say he shot toward his car when his friends took his keys from him after a night of too much alcohol.

Port St. Lucie Police arrested 28-year-old Evan Thomas Boomhower on Sunday and charged him with shooting into a vehicle, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct/intoxication.

According to police, officers responded to TailGators for reports of a shooting in the area. When officers arrived on scene, they found Boomhower sitting behind the business.

During the investigation, police found out that Boomhower had gotten drunk and tried to drive home, but his friends took his keys from and wouldn't let him drive. Boomhower got mad and fired shots at his car five or six times.

While on the scene, police received another call from a person who said their car's "check engine light" came on and when they checked to see the problem, they found a "bullet hole in the truck," police say. After an examination of the vehicle, police say they found six bullet holes in the hood of the victim's vehicle.

No injuries were reported and Boomhower was taken to the St. Lucie County Jail.
