A Wisconsin man was sentenced to five years in prison after shooting at his pizza delivery driver, according to authorities.

On Feb. 16, 2022, a 46-year-old female DoorDash driver arrived at the home of John Norman, 33, with a pizza delivery, court records show. As she approached the house, Norman is accused of firing a shot with a shotgun at the woman through the glass part of his door.

The delivery driver ran to her car and called the police. She told officers she had glass all over her hair and in her clothes.

The driver stated she arrived at Norman’s house in Barton and put “arrive” on her DoorDash app. She said it appeared Norman was waiting for her, police said.

The police report didn’t state why Norman fired the shot at the driver.

Once officers arrived at the scene, officers noticed Norman’s eyes were “very watery in appearance and severely bloodshot” and his “speech was slurred and drawn out, and he was unbalanced while walking,” court records state.

Officers administered a field sobriety test and Norman failed, as he struggled with his balance and coordination, police said.

Inside the residence, officers found a 12-gauge shotgun, a spent shotgun shell and other types of ammunition.

Court records show Norman agreed to a plea deal in January. He pleaded no contest to first-degree recklessly endangering safety, officials said. With that deal, his charge of felony bail jumping was dismissed.

Officials said Norman was out on bond for an incident in 2021, which included second-degree recklessly endangering safety.
