Drive-by horse shooter jailed for Amish buggy attack

LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA -- A drive-by shooter who gunned down a horse pulling a buggy with an Amish family inside has been sentenced to one to two years behind bars by a Pennsylvania judge.
A married couple and their three young children were in the buggy when Timothy Diggs Jr. pulled alongside it and opened fire.
Blaming cough medicine abuse for his behaviour, Diggs apologized for the shooting as he pleaded guilty to cruelty to animals, reckless endangerment and also entered pleas on several unrelated charges.
But Lancaster County Judge David Ashworth was less than impressed with his apology and sentenced Diggs in the aggravated range under state guidelines.
He warned Diggs that if he ended up back in court, "I'll put you in jail for as long as I can."
