HERTFORD — A 66-year-old Perquimans County man is facing charges after he allegedly shot the vehicle tire of another man following an argument.

Jarvis Miller of the 600 block of Swamp Road was arrested Nov. 13 and charged with assault by pointing a gun and discharge of a weapon into occupied property. His bond was set at $43,000.

Perquimans County Sheriff Shelby White said the charges against Miller stem from an argument he had with Troy Jackson on Fowler Fork Road. As Miller was pulling away from the site in his vehicle, he shot the tire on Jackson’s vehicle, White said.

White said he didn’t know why the men were arguing.
