FORT PIERRE (AP) - A Colorado man accused of shooting the walls and windows of a Fort Pierre business with a shotgun and then eluding authorities has taken a deal and pleaded guilty to a felony charge.

KCCR radio reports that 31-year-old Dalton Winchester claims the incident was fueled by the abuse of energy drinks.

Court documents say Winchester caused thousands of dollars of damage to Baumann Lumber of Fort Pierre.

Stanley County State's Attorney Thomas Maher says he hasn't heard of a case in which energy drinks contributed to a crime.

An attorney for Winchester didn't immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.
