    Residents of the quiet, tree-lined Canterbury Village neighborhood in Concord have been blitzed by a low-flying, leafletting spurned lover.

    A pilot accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend by flying his small plane over her Concord neighborhood has pleaded guilty.
         
    A Contra Costa County judge immediately sentenced 52-year-old Tom Huey to three years probation and a year of anger-management sessions after he entered his plea to three counts of stalking Wednesday. He is also under a 10-year restraining order to stay away from the woman.

    On Sept. 23, 2009, Huey made at least eight passes at low altitude over the neighborhood where his former girlfriend lived. Police believe Huey also dropped flyers from his plane that made disparaging comments about her.

    After being alerted by residents concerned about the low-flying aircraft, police arrested Huey at Concord's Buchanan Field Airport after he landed.
