Gun Pointed At Pilot Of Crop Dusting Airplane

A woman who allegedly pointed a gun at an airplane pilot will not face any criminal charges.

Last week, a crop duster was making several low passes while spraying a field on Beulahtown Road outside of Kenly.  The Nash County pilot said while making three passes, a person standing near the field pointed what appeared to be a weapon at his plane. The pilot said the person appeared the be tracking the plane with the gun as it flew past.

Johnston County deputies responded to the area and located the person. During questioning the woman admitted to pointing the gun but said she thought it was a remote controlled airplane flying past and not a real plane.

The weapon was never discharged.  Authorities said the pilot declined to press any charges.  There were no injuries.
