TWIN FALLS, Idaho — A south-central Idaho man has been convicted of shooting at a crop-duster.
The Times-News reports 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, complaining that the pilot was flying too low over a home and threatening 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.
