Republican activist accused of shooting at tree trimmers
Associated Press


WACO - A longtime Republican Party activist has been indicted on charges of shooting at workers cutting down trees at her Woodway home.

Carolyn Payne Lomax, 63, was indicted Wednesday on two counts of aggravated assault in a 2004 incident when Asplundh Co. workers were trimming trees around utility lines for utility company Oncor.

Lomax has said no one from the company contacted her before workers "butchered" her trees. On previous occasions, a supervisor went to her property and oversaw the cutting when asked, she said.

This time, Lomax said, the workers appeared to be mocking her in Spanish. After repeated pleas, she said, she went inside and grabbed a .22-caliber pistol from a desk drawer.
