— City police arrested and charged a Greensboro, N.C., man earlier this week after he allegedly fired a pistol several times outside the Tega Cay Golf Course clubhouse, according to a report.

Timothy Scott House, 36, is accused of pulling out “a small handgun” at about 12:37 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, and “for no apparent reason firing shots into the the air,” the report states. Witnesses told police House was standing outside the clubhouse smoking a cigarette before firing the gun. He then got into a white SUV being driven by another man and left the area, heading down Tega Cay Drive, witnesses told police, according to the report.

Police used a credit card slip they said the driver of the SUV used to pay for drinks at the clubhouse to track the two down. Officers said when they stopped the SUV that House, described in the report as appearing “highly intoxicated,” was in the passenger seat.

Four spent shell casings were recovered from the clubhouse area, the report states, and after further investigation, House was arrested and charged, said Capt. David Nelson, spokesman for the Tega Cay Police Dept. According to a supplemental report, on Oct. 20, House turned himself in at the Tega Cay Police Dept., where he surrendered a Kel Tec .32-caliber pistol and was charged with public disorderly conduct, unlawfully carrying a pistol and discharge of a dangerous device.

House was released on bond.
