He man­aged to nail the thing with a sin­gle shot.  Robin­son insisted his motives were purely inno­cent, say­ing, “Every year I go some­where to get some mistle­toe to dec­o­rate the house. I get some for my friends that can’t get mistle­toe. The best way to get it is with a shot­gun.” But cops were not impressed, charg­ing him with reck­less con­duct and dis­charg­ing a firearm.
