PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A man who fired a handgun into his lawn after a night of drinking at his home in Sandy has been ordered to serve three years of probation and undergo alcohol treatment.

The Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1qKZ44h ) that Robert Clevenger II was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to unlawful use of a weapon in connection with the Saturday incident. Additional charges of reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct were dropped as part of a plea deal.

Police say Sandy officers and Clackamas County sheriff’s deputies had responded to Clevenger’s home to a report of shots fired. A probable cause affidavit says responding officers had ducked behind a truck for cover as Clevenger fired shots into the ground.

Police did not return fire and no one was injured.
