For 9 years, Idaho man plowed his neighbors walks. This year, it landed him in court
POCATELLO — The charges have been dismissed against a Pocatello man who gained national notoriety after being cited by police while plowing an elderly neighbor’s driveway.
Mitch Fisher was given a $206 citation for depositing dangerous material on the street on Jan. 4 while he was plowing snow from his neighbor’s driveway. The charges against Fisher were dismissed during a pre-trial conference on Monday. However, Fisher did pay a $75 fine, according to court records.
Attorney Paul Echo Hawk took up the case pro bono and negotiated to have the charges against Fisher dismissed.
“For what he was trying to do, I didn’t feel like he deserved criminal punishment,” Echo Hawk said.
