2 Idaho men arrested after night deer hunt
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A pair of southwestern Idaho men were arrested after
shooting at a deer from a public road using artificial light early Sunday
morning in eastern Boise.
Boise Police received a report of shots fired near the corner of Warm
Springs and Eckert streets just before 3:30 a.m.
Police say two men used a .410 shotgun handgun to fire repeatedly at a
deer they'd seen from the road using a flashlight.
Dustin L. Edison, a 28-year-old man from Nampa, was arrested on suspicion
of being a felon in possession of a firearm, as well as hunting without a
license, hunting with an artificial light and shooting from a public road.
His 28-year-old companion, Dustin H. Chase, of Caldwell, was arrested for
hunting without a license, hunting with an artificial light and shooting
from a public highway.
Edison has had numerous run-ins with the law, including a conviction for
grand theft and burglary related to an incident in Canyon County from 2000
in which he served time in prison.
