A Texas man was arrested early Sunday morning after firing a round inside the Harrah's Council Bluffs Casino and Hotel parking garage.

Council Bluffs Police officers were dispatched to Harrah's at approximately 5 a.m., for a report of an intoxicated person. When officers arrived, security personnel at the casino said that the man had a pistol on his person.

The security guard said that when James A. Poling, 76, was asked if he had any weapons on his person, he stated that he had a pistol in his front pocket. The security guard also said that an unknown person had told him that a loud fireworks noise had came from the parking garage.

Officers asked Poling if he had fired his gun, and Poling allegedly said that he had fired one round into the ceiling of the parking garage. One empty shell was discovered in the .38 pistol. No damage was located in the parking garage.

Officers noticed the heavy smell of an intoxicating beverage emitting from Poling, and, according to reports, he was swaying from side to side and speaking with a slurred and mumbled speech.
