RACINE — A Racine man allegedly fired a gun into the air in anger after being sold fake AirPods.
Eric A. Govea, 23, of the 4300 block of Victory Avenue, was charged with felony counts of second degree recklessly endangering safety and discharging a firearm from a vehicle towards a building or vehicle and misdemeanor counts of carrying a concealed weapon, possession of THC and disorderly conduct.
According to a criminal complaint:
On April 22, an investigator was assigned to a shots-fired incident that happened at the intersection of Russet Street and Pierce Boulevard on April 21 at 2:58 p.m. Footage from a Ring doorbell showed a Jeep and a Chevrolet Silverado travel through the intersection and a total of four loud shots can be heard. The person in the Silverado was seen having his hand extended from the window.
At 4:24 p.m. Monday, an officer found the Silverado and issued a traffic stop in the BP gas station on the 1100 block of Washington Avenue. Govea was detained and a loaded gun was found on him as well as two fully loaded magazines. A baggie containing 15 grams of marijuana was found in the car, police said.
Govea said that he had an altercation with someone from which he had bought AirPods — wireless headphones made by Apple that retail for $159-$199.
He said he was mad at them because the AirPods were fake and he had been ripped off $120. He noticed the person in the Jeep on Durand Avenue and started following him. They turned northbound onto Russet Street and began to accelerate. Govea then reportedly shot multiple rounds into the air.
Govea was given a $5,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit Court on Tuesday. A preliminary court hearing is set for May 6 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
