GALION, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in north-central Ohio say a man with young children was arrested after he admitted firing gunshots into the ground as a vehicle passed because he was angry that drivers were speeding along his road.

Richland County Sheriff's Sgt. Rich Eichinger tells the Mansfield News Journal (http://ohne.ws/19iFegu ) someone reported to 911 on Wednesday night that an armed man was firing gunshots near a road in Galion, about 55 miles north of Columbus. No one was hurt.

The newspaper says the 26-year-old man was charged with aggravated menacing and was taken to the Richland County jail. His name wasn't immediately released.

The sheriff's department seized the handgun and five knives.
