Police suspect a Heber City man was unhappy about losing his court case and turned a metal detector into a weapon against a witness.
The man was charged in 4th District Court on Wednesday with recklessly shooting or propelling a missile and aggravated assault. If he's convicted, he could up to five years in prison for each count.
On March 8, the man lost a small claims case in Heber City Justice Court. He walked out of the second floor courtroom behind a witness who testified against him, "not very content with the judge's decision," a bailiff noted in a statement.
