A northwest Iowa man has been given jail time for shooting at a vacuum salesperson in September.
The Sioux County Attorney's Office says 50-year-old Samuel Harrison, of Hawarden, was sentenced Monday to five years in prison and extensive jail time involving at least a year. All but 45 days of jail was suspended.
Harrison was charged with a felony of going armed with intent, and aggravated misdemeanors of aggravated assault and operating while intoxicated.
Authorities say Harrison discharged gunshot rounds following a dispute with a door-to-door vacuum salesperson in September. Harrison gave the salesperson permission to enter his home but eventually told the salesperson to leave. He said he shot his weapon to scare the salesperson, who was not injured.
Harrison's sentence includes probation and use of an alcohol-sensing bracelet.
