FOREST CITY – A Forest City man got probation and a suspended fine after shooting out a window on a school bus with children inside.
On January 5, 2018, at 7:40 AM, an incident occured that became an active investigation by law enforcement. A bus window, on an in-town bus route, was shattered by a pellet gun as the bus was moving, the Forest City School District said. They reported that all children were safe and there were no injuries as a result of the shattered window. KHAK radio reported that “the pellet landed in the hair of a female passenger”.
Soon thereafter, law enforcement identified the person responsible for the incident. Arrested was 33-year-old Martin Tindall of Forest City on charges of felony intimidation with a dangerous weapon and third-degree criminal mischief.
In November, Tindall accepted a plea deal in the case.
At his sentencing earlier this month, Tindall was given a suspended 5-year prison sentence and a suspended fine. He must pay $510.74 in restitution.
