LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A
29-year-old Lincoln man who'd held police at bay for nine hours last
summer has been given two to four years in prison.
records say Damien Brown pleaded guilty to a weapons charge after
prosecutors dropped two other charges. He was sentenced Tuesday by Judge
Steven Burns in Lancaster County District Court.
officers were sent to a Lincoln home around 4 p.m. on Aug. 2 after someone
reported that a man was pointing a gun out of a window. When the
officers arrived, Brown climbed out of a second-floor window and
threatened officers, brandishing a knife and screwdriver.
Police say Brown then jumped onto a neighbor's roof, where he stayed until surrendering around 1 a.m. the next day.
