Of preventable death.

So if you are spraying them, you are a her saving lives. Why would a hero get shot at?

AUGUST 7--A Louisiana woman who fired several shots at a small airplane spraying for mosquitoes claimed that she thought that the manned aircraft passing over her home was a hobbyist’s drone, according to a police report.

Cops allege that Stacy Nguyen Rodgers, 40, fired at the plane three times in an attempt to bring down the aircraft as it flew passes over her home in Monroe early yesterday.

When investigators questioned Rodgers, seen at right, she confessed to shooting at “the drone” with a “revolver style pistol” that was confiscated by police officers.

Cops noted that Rodgers was intoxicated when booked into the local jail. None of Rodgers's rounds hit their intended airborne target.

A “witness on scene” showed police cell phone video of the aircraft “moments after the arrestee had fired at it.” The clip, cops reported, clearly showed a manned aircraft in the sky over Rodgers’s residence, not a drone.

On the video, Rodgers can reportedly be heard saying, “He’s coming back to taunt us,” and referencing “her shooting at the airplane.”

Police determined that the plane Rodgers shot at was spraying for mosquitoes in an area where multiple “mosquito pools” have recently tested positive for the West Nile virus.

Charged with illegal use of a weapon, a felony, Rodgers was booked into the Ouachita Parish jail, from which she was released Wednesday morning on $500 bond. (2 pages)
