OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) - A man accused of pointing a handgun during a confrontation with a family of mountain bikers has been sentenced to 90 days in jail.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/TjulKF ) his wife was sentenced to 15 days.

Prosecutor Bill Golden says the couple is well known among mountain bikers where they used to live, near Mount Hood.

He said 58-year-old Pamela Ann Gathwright is believed to be responsible for three unprovoked attacks on dogs.

Her lawyer says she’s been bitten, is fearful and wants dogs leashed in public.

Golden says her complaints about a family’s dogs started a confrontation in May 2013. She was accused of attempted animal abuse for threatening one with a stun gun.

Her husband, 60-year-old David Bruce Gathwright, was accused of pointing a handgun at a family member.
