Jury member gasps at photos of airplane buzzing beach

Modified: Wednesday, Mar 19th, 2014

NEWPORT - The trial of a pilot who is charged with buzzing a charter fishing boat and skimming rooftops in Waldport will continue Wednesday in Lincoln County Circuit Court, where South Beach resident Dean Battersby faces 20 misdemeanor counts of illegal maneuvers and menacing in his Cessna 172.

On Tuesday, jury selection was followed by the testimony of five eyewitnesses. One juror gasped and others sat forward when a prosecutor displayed pictures of a plane — allegedly piloted by Battersby —making a low pass on a Waldport beach.

The trial is scheduled to resume at 9 a.m. For full details on the verdict, see Friday's edition of the News-Times.
