- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A 38-year-old Fairbanks driver is accused of shooting a gun from his moving truck to relieve stress. Craig Logan Lant is charged with weapons misconduct, reckless driving and reckless endangerment. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says Lant was arrested Friday after a driver reported seeing a man in an oncoming lane shoot a gun from the window of a pickup. The witness told Alaska State Troopers the man with the gun was driving along the middle of the road and shot into some trees. The witness honked and said the truck swerved to the correct side of the roadway. Troopers say Lant told them he knew shooting wasn't a good idea, but was "just letting out a bit of steam after work." It's unclear if Lant has an attorney.
