A man accused of shooting at Navy SEALs with a pellet gun during a training exercise pleaded guilty Wednesday, a day before his trial was set to begin.
Scott Weaver, 48, faces a year in San Diego County jail when he is sentenced Nov. 1. Weaver pleaded guilty to brandishing a replica firearm and attempting to threaten a witness to the July 23 attack, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
An assault with a deadly weapon charge was dismissed at an earlier hearing.
Authorities said Weaver confronted Navy SEAL instructors and trainees at around 10:30 p.m. during a nighttime qualification course over a small bay inlet and opened fire at them using a pellet gun.
San Diego police were called and he was arrested.
