By The Staff

Seth Leon Foster is charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm after a verbal dispute with two men at Jack's Recycling on Northwest Highway 19 in Trenton escalated into shots fired at a customer's truck.

Foster, 20, of Northwest 81st Street in Fanning Springs, was arrested after the truck's owner called 9-1-1 to report a person firing a weapon at his truck and him.

When Deputy Ella Roberts arrived, Foster had left the scene, but he returned to be interviewed by Sheriff's Investigator Mark Morgan.

Foster was working at Jack's Recycling when he got into an argument with two customers about items being removed when one of the men allegedly struck him twice.

Foster went into his travel trailer on the premises, retrieved a SKS rifle 308 caliber and shot the other customer's vehicle five to six times as the owner stood nearby, according to Morgan's report.

The truck's owner was in front of the vehicle at the time of the shooting and said Foster shot at him, according to Morgan's report.
