Snow Plow Shooter Gets Probation

The man who shot a snow plow driver in the head with a BB gun last winter will spend the next five years on probation.

41-year-old Thomas Barone of Gowanda shot at the village sidewalk plow and hit the window back on February 20, 2013. Besides hitting the driver in the head, the shot broke the window, which covered the driver with glass, causing cuts to his face.

The driver was taken to Lake Shore Hospital for observation. Barone must also pay more than $600 in restitution.
