A Rohrersville man who pointed a loaded gun at an acquaintance in a liquor store parking lot on Feb. 23 was given a five-year suspended sentence Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court.
Terry Wayne Shaff, 32, of 2802 Shaff Road, pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and carrying a deadly weapon.
Judge Kennedy Boone imposed a concurrent 18-month sentence for the weapon conviction and ordered Shaff to perform 50 hours of community service and pay $1,025 in fine and court costs during the first year of his three years of probation.
The gun was forfeited.
Boone ordered substance abuse treatment despite Shaff's contention that he doesn't have a problem.
According to Deputy State's Attorney Charles Strong, Shaff's prior record includes convictions for drunken driving and possession of illegal drugs.
The Feb. 23 incident occurred at 6:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the Hillside Liquor Store on U.S. 340, when a confrontation arose over a stolen dirt bike, Strong said.
