MUNCIE, Ind. — A Muncie man is accused of firing gunshots at a home that contained his infant grandchild.

Charles Lewis Copley, 41, was arrested Sunday, preliminarily charged with criminal recklessness, intimidation and criminal mischief.

A 21-year-old Muncie woman told police on Friday that she and her father — identified as Copley — were arguing outside an Ault Avenue home when he threw a chair that broke a window.

She said Copley then retrieved a handgun and fired two or three times at the house. Her four-month-old child — in the house at the time — was not wounded,

Two other witnesses reported seeing the shooting incident. Two shell casings were recovered from the scene.

Copley, arrested Sunday, was later released from the Delaware County jail after posting a $12,500 bond.

The Muncie man is set to stand trial Jan. 17, in Lawrence Superior Court 1, on four felony charges filed in June 2022 — intimidation, possession of a narcotic drug and two counts of attempted kidnapping,

His record includes convictions for dealing in cocaine, possession of cocaine and resisting law enforcement.

According to a report by a Grant County sheriff’s deputy, James on July 9 exposed himself while giving the teenager a ride from Muncie to the community of Matthews in southeastern Grant County.

The girl sent a text message to one of her parents while the event was unfolding, and was directed to take a photograph of James with her cellphone.

The incident was at first reported to Hartford City police, who determined the incident had allegedly taken place in Grant County.

Interviewed by investigators from both Hartford City and Grant County, James at first denied the juvenile’s allegations.
