Minnesota man who shot at federal helicopter sentenced to 60 months 

A defense attorney claims a Clearbrook, Minnesota, man sentenced this week for shooting at a U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter is a "nonviolent, peace-loving human being" who overreacted to what he believed was a life-threatening situation. U.S. District Judge Michael Davis sentenced Carstie Lee Clausen, 72, on Wednesday, Nov. 29, in Minnesota's federal court to 60 months in prison for assault of a federal agent and damaging an aircraft under the jurisdiction of the U.S. A third charge of discharging a firearm during the commission of a crime of violence was dismissed.
