38-year-old Andy Klotter faces a felony charge of making terroristic threats as a result of the incident, which happened around 2 a.m. Aug. 13 in front of a Farmington home.

According to a complaint filed last week in the Dakota County Attorney's office, the fight happened as a sober driver was giving a group of people rides home following a night out. Klotter and another individual got into a fight, and Klotter went into his home and came out with a black handgun. He reportedly walked to a neighbor's house and fired the gun into the air. Police found a .45 caliber shell casing in the yard.

At least one witness told police he was worried about his safety.

If convicted on the terroristic threats charge Klotter could face up to five years in jail and $10,000 in fines.
