A husband was arrested on a charge of assault after allegedly shooting a gun at his wife because he got jealous that she spent time with their baby, police in Minnesota said.

Cold Spring police said that they have arrested 28-year-old Nicholas George Lehmeier, after being accused of abusing his wife for more than 10 years.

Lehmeier was charged with one count of second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon. If convicted, he faces up to seven years in prison and a fine of up to $14,000.

The woman told the police that when she was sitting on the couch with the baby, Lehmeier became upset because she was spending time breastfeeding the child instead of being with him.

Lehmeier grabbed a shotgun, loaded it, and pointed it at her and the child. He then pulled the trigger of the gun, but it did not shoot.

Lehmeier said that one bullet is all that he needs to end it all.

Lehmeier left the room and shot the gun out of the window of the room in his wife’s direction.
