    NEWPORT - A Vermont man has been accused of shooting a gun at a woman and another is accused of driving the getaway car.

    Twenty-six-year-old Jeffrey Mitchell pleaded not guilty this week in Orleans Superior Court to aggravated assault with a weapon. Twenty-four-year-old Christopher Degreenia pleaded not guilty to aiding in the commission of aggravated assault. Both are from Sheffield.

    The Caledonian-Record reported that a woman called 911 in July to report that a man fired a weapon at her from a car. She was not hit. The woman said she heard from her roommate, who believed the shooter was a former boyfriend who had threatened her. They have a daughter.

    Mitchell told police the ex-girlfriend was "crazy" and probably made up the story to keep the child away from him.
