PIERCE COUNTY, Wis. A Pierce County man is back in court Monday, after an odd incident caught on tape last year.

According to online court records, Jesse Rutherford, 28, of Big Bend pleaded no contest to three charges Monday, including first degree recklessly endangering safety.

Deputies say last May, a church youth group was camping in a yard, when Rutherford approached them with a gun. He's accused of telling the group to get on their knees and help him get his car out of a ditch.

Rutherford let some of the boys go when they said they will get a truck to tow his car. That's when they called police.

His sentencing has been set for October 30th.
