Arrest of man follows shooting at party


A Radcliff man was arrested Sunday morning after allegedly firing a handgun at a party.

Jack Main, 39, is being charged with first-degree wanton endangerment.

According to a citation from the Hardin County Sheriff’s Department, the incident began after Main was told someone at the party reportedly sexually abused an underage girl. Main allegedly left the party, grabbed a handgun from his residence and returned.

Main reportedly got into an altercation with the homeowner and made threats related to the abuse rumors. He fired three to four shots into the ground in the direction of the homeowner before leaving, according to the citation.

First-degree wanton endangerment is a Class D felony, punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted.

Main was lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center and later released on a $500 unsecured bond. He is expected to appear Oct. 14 in Hardin District Court according to jail information.
