Man charged with attempted murder after shots fired into house

Posted: Monday, October 23, 2000

WASILLA (AP) -- A Wasilla man was charged with attempted murder after troopers say he fired several shots at a home early Saturday.

Jason Freeland, 22, was booked into Mat-Su Pre-Trial Facility early Saturday and held on $150,000 bond after troopers caught up with him.

One bullet went through the front window of the Wasilla home of Andrew Hupp, troopers said, and one was fired into the front door..

Freeland was asked to leave the house at about 2 a.m. Saturday after displaying a 45-caliber semi-automatic pistol, troopers reported.

Freeland left the house, but troopers say he fired about three shots at the house, then left with a 17-year-old girl. Freeland was so drunk the girl persuaded him to let her drive, according to troopers.

He then told the girl to return to Hupp's house, troopers said, then fired several more shots at the house. The pair then drove off again.

Troopers stopped the car as it pulled into a driveway, but Freeland took off into the woods. He was later spotted on a nearby highway and arrested after a foot chase.
