WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man who shot at a city public works truck after he was asked to move his car has been sentenced to four years in prison.
The Republican-American (http://bit.ly/2ysveGq ) reports that 21-year-old Joshua Thompson was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to attempting to commit first-degree assault.
Police say Waterbury public works employees told Thompson to move his car after he parked on the lawn at a city park.
When they saw that the lawn had been damaged, the workers tried to get a picture of Thompson's license plate. Police say Thompson opened fire and struck their city-owned pickup truck.
No injuries were reported.
Thompson, who did not comment during the hearing, was also sentenced to six years of probation.
