New Haven, CT - A Yale student arrested last summer for firing blanks into the ceiling of his fraternity house and stock-piling weapons in his room has begun a one year state prison sentence.
David Light, 22, pleaded no contest in Superior Court to reckless endangerment and two counts of illegal possession of assault weapons.
Light, who was a member of the New Haven Sportsman's Club and the Jewish group Chabad at Yale, was arrested in July, for firing off rounds of blanks at the ceiling, insisting that no one would get hurt. When police searched his room they found a cache of assault weapons and guns, several boxes of ammunition and a box of chemicals and fuses that could have been used for bomb-making, as was reported on VIN News at that time.
