Westwood Police Chief Frank Regino tells The Record of Woodland Park that Wednesday's incident stirred post-9/11 anxieties about low-flying aircraft.
Pilot Warren Saunders of Westwood has been charged with violating a state law that prohibits aerial stunts over densely inhabited areas or public gatherings. He's been released on his own recognizance.
Regino said Saunders was practicing to drop streamers in school colors before Westwood High School's football game on Saturday.
Saunders could not be reached for comment. There is no published telephone listing for his Westwood address.
