CHELAN FALLS (AP) — The Douglas County sheriff’s office says a man fired warning shots at a parasail he felt was flying too low over his property.
Undersheriff Don Culp told The Wenatchee World the parasail was not hit Tuesday afternoon and the 36-year-old Issaquah man landed at a park in Chelan Falls and called the sheriff’s office.
The parasailer had taken off from Chelan Butte and ran into the anti-aircraft fire across the Columbia River from Chelan Falls.
The 66-year-old property owner told a deputy he did not intend to hit the parasail. He said he first yelled at the parasailer for trespassing by flying too low and fired two or three shots after verbal unpleasantries.
The case was referred to the county prosecutor.
