LAS VEGAS (AP) - A North Las Vegas teacher faces attempted murder and other charges after police say he fired shots at a television crew for the Spike TV reality show “Repo Games.”

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that 40-year-old Carlos Enrique Barron has been suspended with pay from his job as a special education teacher at Smith Middle School while the investigation continues.

“Repo Games” allows debtors a chance to win back their repossessed cars.

The Review-Journal reports a crew from the show was looking for a vehicle belonging to one of Barron’s neighbors Tuesday night.

A police report says Barron got upset that the crew’s security van was parked in front of his home on Vigilante Court. It says Barron confronted the crew with a gun, slapped one of the crew’s security officers and fired at least three shots. No one was hurt.

Police say Barron admitted brandishing the gun but denied firing any shots.
