FREMONT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 61-year-old mid-Michigan man has been charged with felonious assault after three traveling salesmen reported they were shot at while trying to interest him in a vacuum cleaner.

Isabella County Sheriff Leo Mioduszewski (MED’-uh-SHEH’-skee) says Robert Dale Lee was arraigned Friday.

Mioduszewski says two of the salesmen became suspicious when a man gestured for them to wait after they knocked on the door of his Fremont Township home Thursday. They joined a third Kirby vacuum representative in their van when the man walked toward a pole barn.

Mioduszewski says the man came out of the barn with a long gun as the van drove away. The salesmen said they heard two shots. One salesman told police he heard pellets “whiz” by the open driver’s side window.

No one was hurt.
