A bounce house was accidentally delivered to the wrong address, and the man living there wasn't too happy about it, according to criminal charges filed this week.

The criminal complaint says 59-year-old Robert Baron pulled a gun on two juvenile males who worked for the bounce house company.

The boys had been following directions on a GPS when it led them to the wrong driveway in Nowthen, a small city in Anoka County, the complaint says.

As they were packing up the bounce house so they could go to the correct address, Baron pointed a shotgun at them, according to the charges.

When officers found Baron, a breath test measured his blood alcohol content at more than 0.20, the charges say.

He's charged with two felonies: second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, and threats of violence.

If convicted of both charges, he could face up to 12 years in jail and up to $24,000 in fines.
