Man charged after firing paintballs at house

This happened almost two years ago when we first moved into the house. I found the newspaper clipping kicking around so I figured I’d type it up for prosperity.

HAVERHILL — A 27-year-old man was charged with intimidating a witness yesterday after he fired paintballs at the home of a woman involved in a court case against him, police said.

Officers Ronald C. Hilchey and Michael Rogers found several splashes of orange paint on the side of the Union Street home and recovered the paintball gun from the alley off nearby Franklin Street, said Officer Lawrence R. Newman, who is filling in as the department’s spokesman.

Police arrested Shane Fisher, 70 Franklin St. Investigators said this is not the first time Mr. Fisher has caused problems fro the 43-year-old woman.

“This has been an ongoing case for a while, with damage and threads made against the victim,” Officer Newman said.

The incident happened about 1 a.m.
