Prosecutors filed formal charges against Lily Hawkinson yesterday. They say she fired one shot near her boyfriend’s ear on Monday, then fired a second shot at him as he was walking away from their home in Fall Creek. Police say Hawkinson’s blood-alcohol-level was two-and-a-half-times the legal limit when she was arrested. The boyfriend says she was angry because he had not finished filling-out his tax forms. She’s facing recklessly endangering safety, disorderly conduct, and weapons charges.
