He pleaded guilty to dropping objects from an aircraft in a populated area. He'll write a letter to the town's mayor apologizing.

Saunders said he did the drop over the Westwood Middle School athletic fields on Oct. 13 as a test run for a streamer drop he planned to do at a high school football game.

People on a nearby soccer field called police, prompting a large law enforcement response.
