    Huntley Police Chief John Perkins said Wednesday a hot-air balloon pilot’s decision to land in a residential neighborhood was “irresponsible” and could result in charges against the pilot. The balloon carrying four people took off from a Hampshire airport and landed at 7:27 a.m. Tuesday in the middle of an intersection at Songbird Lane and Windy Prairie Drive in the Sun City senior living community. “He was either very irresponsible for putting it down in a residential neighborhood or there was a safety problem,” Perkins said. “If we believe that he brought that (balloon) down intentionally, I would have to pursue charges.”
