Was it his wife’s shotgun?
ST. MARIES, Idaho (AP) – A northern Idaho man who police say fired his shotgun near a U.S. census worker who was trying to deliver a census form has been cited for exhibition of a deadly weapon, a misdemeanor.
Fifty-4-year-old Richard L. Powell of St. Maries faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
The Benewah County Prosecutor’s office says that on March 3 Powell told the census worker to get off his property and then fired a shotgun into the air.
