A police chief in Piscataquis County, Maine was found guilty of baiting deer on Thursday, a crime during open hunting season.
South Berwick Police Chief Dana Lajoie represented himself in court and denied the charge, but was convicted and fined $900.
The chief reportedly placed piles of apples along a trail near his house in early October to lure deer out and shoot them from an observation post, which is also illegal. Game wardens discovered both the piles of apples and a nearby tree stand.
