Charles Michael Windle, a resident of Alabama, received a deferred sentence Monday after entering a plea of "no contest" to felony menacing. Windle was working for a mine in the North Fork Valley when he and a co-worker exchanged heated words about sharing employee housing.
Windle admitted he had been drinking when he grabbed his gun. He intended to fire a "warning shot" into the air, but instead blew out the windshield of his co-worker's vehicle.
Windle told Judge Charles Greenacre he felt intimidated by the co-worker but recognizes he had other options. "I wish I hadn't got the gun."
Windle was sentenced to two years of unsupervised probation.blog comments powered by Disqus
