SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) — A retired Los Angeles Sheriff's Deputy has pleaded not guilty to firing a gun into the air after a group of children pranked him at his home.

City News Service reports Wednesday that 48-year-old Sung Jin Pak is accused of discharging a firearm with gross negligence.

Officials say Pak fired the gun into the air after a group of children repeatedly rang his doorbell as a prank last October.

Police say Pak was not in court for the arraignment and entered his plea through an attorney. The judge ordered him not to have any firearms.

Officials say if he is convicted, Pak will face up to one year in county jail. His pretrial hearing is scheduled for next month.
