Father convicted of pointing pistol at son


WISCONSIN RAPIDS (WAOW) - An 81-year-old father who police say pointed a loaded pistol at his son in a disagreement over money has been placed on three years probation as part of a plea deal.

Robert Hass of Wisconsin Rapids pleaded no contest to second-degree recklessly endangering safety and guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct during a court appearance Thursday. A misdemeanor count of operating a firearm while intoxicated was dismissed in the plea deal, according to online court records.

No one was hurt in the May 9 incident at Hass' home at Maples Mobile Park.

According to investigators, the son was able to flee the home after police arrived. Authorities say Hass then threw a 9mm pistol out of the home and he was arrested.

Police said the disagreement involved some bills either not being paid or not being paid on time.

As part of his probation on the felony conviction, Hass, who spent 46 days in jail, must get rid of his firearms, maintain absolute sobriety and cooperate with any agency assigned to evaluate his living situation, a court official said.
