A man has been arrested after allegedly firing a shotgun at people visiting a crop circle.
The 62-year-old reportedly hid in a tent in the centre of the circle before jumping out and firing over the heads of a group of tourists, thought to be from Norway.
The incident happened following the appearance of a crop circle in fields close to the village of Allington, near Devizes, Wiltshire.
The group of tourists fled and called police, who sent armed officers and a helicopter to the scene at around 2pm on Monday.
The 300ft crop circle is thought to be of an ancient bird.
Nearby Cannings Cross Farm lost thousands of pounds worth of crops in 2007 after a 500ft pattern appeared in a field.
Wiltshire Police said a 62-year-old man, from Oldham in Lancashire, had been arrested for possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
He has been released on conditional bail pending further inquiries.
A spokesman for the force could not confirm whether the man worked on the land.

I think you all guys haven't spent enough time on the details in cropcircles. I respect your opinion but to be frank if you deeply think about it there is no reason (mental) in doing this at the extend it is happening (that is if i dismiss the aforementioned details).
Sure there is a load of fake one too, but generally you can make these out quite easily...
