TERRE HAUTE — A Farmersburg man remained in custody Saturday evening, accused of firing bullets into a local television station.

According to a news release issued by the Indiana State Police, Kenneth Trey Bolinger, 24, of Farmersburg, was arrested Saturday afternoon for an allegation of criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon, a class-C felony, and three counts of criminal mischief, a class-D felony. He remained in the Sullivan County Jail with bail set at $39,000.

Bolinger is accused of firing a weapon into the building of WTWO at 10849 N. U.S. 41, as well as two vehicles parked outside.

According to the release, troopers responded to the station at 8:33 a.m. Saturday to investigate the reports of gunfire.
