PETERSBURG, Alaska (AP) — A Petersburg teenager who intentionally ran down two deer with a pickup has pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts.
Alaska State Troopers say the 17-year-old boy on Tuesday pleaded guilty to harassing game and taking game with a motorized vehicle.
He was sentenced to 160 hours of community work service, 30 days of suspended jail time, and fined $3,000.
He will lose hunting privileges for a year and spend a year on probation.
Wildlife troopers investigated after people reported seeing video on a social media site of the pickup being intentionally driven toward three deer on a road and striking two.
A 17-year-old passenger in the truck shot the video. She also was charged.
