Fireflies, bath salts and lasers from aliens. How police say the three are related

Jesse Shields, 30, of Renovo, and Katherine McCloskey, 22, of Mill Hall, were arrested after Shield shot a .357 Magnum in the air to scare away fireflies because he believed them to be lasers coming from aliens. Shields and McCloskey were under the influence of bath salts, according to state police at Lamar.
