BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A war veteran who police say was arrested after firing shots in his Vermont apartment has pleaded not guilty to reckless endangerment charges.

Forty-five-year-old Patrick Perras entered the plea Thursday in Burlington. A judge placed him in the custody of his sister.

Police say Perras fired more than a dozen rounds inside his Essex Junction apartment on Tuesday. They say Perras called 911 and told them he was being ambushed and was returning fire.

Perras was taken to a VA hospital where he underwent a screening on Wednesday. A judge on Thursday ordered him to return for treatment.
