Rodney L. Mosley, 56, pleaded not guilty Monday (July 27) to charges of using weapons while intoxicated and inducing panic after police said he fired shots from inside a home on Portage Trail Extension Thursday night.

Mosley, a Cuyahoga Falls resident, was released on a $7,500 signature bond after his appearance in Stow Municipal Court Monday morning. His next court date on the pair of first-degree misdemeanor charges is Aug. 17 at 12:30 p.m. before Judge Kim Hoover.

Initially, the department responded to 418 West Portage Trail Extension on Thursday (July 23) for a report of shots fired inside the residence. The caller stated that a man in the house fired a gun, and it was believed that nobody was injured, according to Cuyahoga Falls Police. Shortly after officers arrived, the man exited the residence empty handed, and he was subsequently taken into custody. Two female relatives also exited the house, and officers determined that nobody else was inside. It was learned that the man fired the shots out of a bedroom window and nobody's safety was jeopardized, according to police. A Smith & Wesson .38 caliber handgun was recovered inside the house.
