James S. Krautkramer, 21, New London, was charged Oct. 4 with second-degree reckless endangerment, possession of a firearm while intoxicated, pointing a firearm at another person and disorderly conduct.
New London police were called out to South Pearl Street at 3:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 3. A witness reported that he and others had been outside a bar, smoking cigarettes and watching a man with a blue and purple Mohawk walking on a railing across the street. When they saw the man nearly fall off the railing, one of them yelled, “Be careful.”
The man with the Mohawk, later identified as Krautkramer, allegedly went to his car, grabbed a handgun, loaded a clip, chambered a round and pointed the gun at the people across the street.
Krautkramer was allegedly drinking at the time of the incident. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of reckless endangerment.
