A man who drew a pellet gun and fought with a Lincoln police officer last summer was sentenced Tuesday to 15-30 months in prison.

Thirty-year-old Carlos Sisneros was convicted of third-degree assault on an officer and obstructing an officer.

Police say that on the night of July 30th, an officer confronted Sisneros in a city park after receiving a report of a man sitting in a tree with binoculars. Police say that when the officer moved to search Sisneros, Sisneros reached for his waistband, yelled, "I have a gun," and pulled out a realistic looking pellet gun.

The 50-year-old officer disarmed Sisneros, tossed the pellet gun and the two scuffled before Sisneros was arrested.
