MARBLE FALLS — A 35-year-old man is in custody after allegedly firing a gun in the area of his ex-wife’s home about 8 p.m. Aug. 6.

Police responded to the 1400 block of Colorado Drive after a caller reported “that an intoxicated male, whom he identified as the homeowner’s ex-husband, was in the residence with a gun and that he believed (the caller) heard a gunshot,” according to a Marble Falls Police Department statement.

Officers surrounded the residence, officials said, but determined the suspect wasn’t in the home at that time. The officer located the suspect in an outbuilding and were able to take him into custody at 8:24 p.m.

Police did recover a firearm. Officials said nobody inside the residence was harmed.

Police arrested Scotty Jodale Kelley and booked him into the Burnet County Jail on a public intoxication charge. The incident remains under investigation and more charges could be pending.

  1. Its amazing how many idiots do the same stupid things day after day after day….

    It just seems like its meant to be this way. This was his calling in life and he fulfilled that purpose.

    Conflict resolution needs to be a mandatory class in elementary, middle and high school. Too many people have no clue how to go about it. The media needs to start promoting this idea instead of reporting every single senseless act of stupidity.

  2. While I will agree that Scott’s actions were stupid, I take issue with “this was his calling in life and he fulfilled that purpose.” Actually, Scott was a combat medic in Iraq for two tours and received a purple heart, a bronze star and several other medals. Possibly PTSD contributed to his actions.

    Before jumping to conclusions perhaps you should know more about the subject you write about. I think our veterans need all the help and assistance that we can give them for their service to our country.
