CONCORD, California – Police have arrested a pilot who they say stalked his ex-girlfriend by repeatedly flying his plane low over her house.
Police in Concord, in northern California, say Tom Huey made several low passes over a residential neighborhood Wednesday evening.
Sgt. Tiffiny Leftwich told the Contra Costa Times that a dozen residents called police to complain. Huey was arrested shortly after landing the Beech single-engine aircraft.
Leftwich says police have been investigating reports of a low-flying plane in the area for more than a year.
Huey's girlfriend filed for a restraining order last year, but he was not served until Wednesday afternoon.
Huey is being held on $155,000 bail on suspicion of felony stalking and violating a restraining order.
