A 76-year-old man was arrested for firing two shots, when two men were trying to repossess his car.

Konstanin Abramian admitted to police that he fired off two rounds at the ground just after midnight last night, according to The Burbank Leader. He said he was trying to scare the two repo men, who came onto his property on Lismore Lane.

Police found two guns at his home and the car that was supposed to be repossessed. They arrested him and now the Burbank resident is facing charges of assault with a deadly weapon. He is scheduled to appear in court March 19.
