Arrested Saturday, Robert Charles Waterhouse remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Sunday afternoon in lieu of $192,026 bail. He also was charged with possession of crack cocaine, sale of cocaine, and failure to appear on previous burglary and simple battery charges. Waterhouse is accused of shooting a man after an argument Feb. 20 in the driveway of a Port Richey home, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Waterhouse and three other people who were in his vehicle fled the scene in a vehicle and left the man in the driveway, the Sheriff's Office said.
