GLENNALLEN -- A Glennallen man has been charged with harassing fishermen during the summer.
Alaska State Troopers said Thursday that Kirk Wilson, 46, faces eight counts of harassment and four counts of hindering lawful fishing.
The charges stem from three incidents that occurred last July on the Klutina River.
In the first incident, Wilson allegedly fired shots from a handgun in an attempt to get fishermen to leave a fishing hole near his cabin. When the fishermen didn't leave, Wilson repeatedly snagged their lines causing them to lose several fish, investigators said.
Wilson also deliberately snagged the lines of fishermen on two other occasions and verbally harassed fishermen and a guide, troopers said.
