While near the bonfire, the 39-year-old man fired off several gunshots in the air with a semi-auto handgun. Deputies contacted McCarthy near the driveway to the residence, where he was taken into custody without incident. A handgun was recovered and seized as evidence.

McCarthy was lodged at the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Jail on one count of first-degree Disorderly Conduct, a Class A misdemeanor and one count of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, a Class C felony.
