The owner of the property in Orondo first yelled at the paraglider that he was trespassing for flying low over his property on Box Canyon Road, Culp told the Wenatchee World. Then he fired rounds into the air. That was followed by verbal “unpleasantries,” which were followed by another round or two, the newspaper said.
Culp said the paraglider landed at a park and called authorities. After hearing his story, a deputy contacted the Orondo man, who admitted firing the shots and yelling at the paraglider, the World said.
Culp said no arrests were made and the case was referred to the county prosecutor .
