NEBRASKA CITY – A $100,000 bond is set in Otoe County for 41-year-old Ryan Dalton of Nebraska City, who is charged with felony child abuse and use of a firearm to commit a felony on June 22.

Nebraska City police told the court that they were dispatched to a disturbance at a Fifth Corso residence where a shotgun had been fired into a television set. Police say the 12-gauge shot went through the TV and through a wall to bedroom with kids in it. The children were not injured.

An arrest affidavit says Dalton told police he fired the shot in defense of his wife, who he says was in a fight with others who had come to get the TV.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled July 10.
