Just another rowdy southern redneck shooting at things and resisting arrest. Southern France, that is:
An 81-year-old Frenchman has been given a one-year suspended jail sentence for firing a hunting rifle at helicopters dropping water on a forest blaze.
David Thiel opened fire on 21 July when the low-flying helicopters disturbed his afternoon nap near Grasse in the south of France, court sources said.
During his arrest the man swore at the policemen and hit them with saucepans.
