The short version:
The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office said that Fair confessed to firing the gun after he was arrested. Deputies said Fair referred to the shot as a ‘warning shot’ to scare the boaters into slowing down.

The full story:
I think if I were in the NWZ and somebody fired at me, I'd be inclined to speed up and leave as fast as I could go, not slow down. Amusing that the driver said he had previously increased his speed to negotiate a turn in the canal. That makes no sense to me.
