TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A south-central Idaho man has been convicted of shooting at a crop duster.
The Times-News reports (http://bit.ly/1e9vDM0) that a jury on Thursday found 42-year-old Christopher V. Lewis of Filer guilty of felony discharging a firearm at an aircraft.
Prosecutors say the pilot told police he saw someone wielding a shotgun below him at about 10:45 a.m. on Aug. 24.
Authorities say that at about the same time, someone called the spraying company saying the pilot was flying too low over home and threatened to "dust the pilot with his 10-gauge shotgun."
Several witnesses say they saw Lewis standing outside his house with a shotgun. Another neighbor testified she heard four shots, walked outside and saw Lewis fire twice at the crop duster.
Sentencing is set for May 5.
