A deer hunter from Chesterfield was charged with firing multiple shotgun shells into an occupied Louisa County house.

Garland Holt, 72, was arrested Dec. 26 on East Jack Jouett Road. The Louisa County Sheriff’s Office charged him with obstruction of justice and eluding police, in addition to illegal shooting. A trooper for the state Department of Game and Inland Fisheries issued summonses to Holt for firing a gun from a road and hunting at night and from a car.

Sheriff’s deputies Dylan Gramling and Justin Hall responded to a call from a woman on River Breeze Road at 7:15 p.m. The woman reported she “heard a gunshot and saw a body lying in the roadway,” according to a complaint Gramling filed in Louisa General District Court.

“When I arrived on scene, the male was attempting to get the body into the trunk of his car,” Gramling wrote.

The body was later determined to be the deer Holt had just shot.
