A 33-year-old Lincoln man has been sentenced to two years' probation for threatening his neighbor and other with a rifle in October.
Lincoln police say Adam Douglass was told to leave when he went to a neighbor's get-together. He argued with his neighbor and two men who were drinking with the neighbor, then threatened to come back with a gun.
Police say he returned with a rifle, pointed it at the men and threatened to shoot. They tackled Douglass and held him down until police arrived, leaving him with a broken nose. The gun fired once during the struggle, but no one was hurt.
Douglass pleaded no contest to third-degree assault back in December. Lancaster County Judge Timothy Phillips sentenced Douglass last week.
