ANNAPOLIS, MD - Police said they arrested an Annapolis man accused of firing shots from his apartment balcony on Sunday afternoon. Nobody was hurt.

Officers identified the arrestee as Bryson Fonsville, 23.

Authorities said they entered the apartment and took Fonsville into custody without incident at 1:03 p.m.

The Annapolis Police Department said it also found several weapons in the apartment, which are now being cataloged at the agency's headquarters.

  • Failure to obey a reasonable, lawful order
  • Disorderly conduct
