CHANDLER, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - A man was booked into jail and later pleaded guilty after police said he was angry at a Waymo autonomous vehicle, so he pointed a gun at it in August.
According to court documents, Roy Leonard Haselton was standing outside his home in Chandler when he saw the self-driving vehicle. The man who was inside the vehicle said Haselton pointed a gun at him.
The driver got scared and called Waymo's dispatch center, who called the Chandler Police Department.
While being interviewed, Haselton admitted to holding the gun up in the air to scare the driver, police said. The 69-year-old said he felt everybody was watching him and he was frustrated and angry with his neighbors.
Haselton was arrested on aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct charges.
He pleaded guilty last Friday to disorderly conduct charges, a class 6 felony.
