Don't you just love 'misplaced modifiers'? "one count of discharging a weapon at a car during his arraignment..." You'd think there would be Sheriffs present to preclude a shooting during an arraignment. Hrrrummmpfff!

Kudos to you, English Teacher. This kind of English faux pas is like finger nails on a chalk board.
