Md. priest fined after pistol prank
A Maryland priest's prank with starter pistol lands him in a Connecticut court.
The Rev. Daniel Lynch pleaded guilty Friday to disturbing the peace and was fined $90.
Lynch was tackled by Bridgeport police in September after they surrounded the house where he was visiting, then rushed inside. Neighbors had reported that one man there was firing a handgun at another.
It turned out the gun was only a starter pistol, which the 62-year-old Lynch had fired at a longtime friend as a joke.
Lynch's lawyer, Robert Photos, said the friends were laughing about the prank when police burst in and took down Lynch as he yelled, “It's not a real gun!” Photos said Lynch, of Takoma Park, Md., was “sorry he created any inconvenience.”
