GREENWOOD, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say an Indianapolis man accused of planning an act of domestic terrorism has been sentenced on unrelated charges.

The Indianapolis Star reports (https://indy.st/2lvhUOn ) that 31-year-old Christopher Byrne faces five years for charges of operating a vehicle after being a habitual traffic offender and carrying a handgun as a convicted felon. The charges stem from a February 2015 arrest.

In the terrorism case, authorities say Byrne was arrested last year after a search of his car revealed a rifle, ammunition and liquids that when mixed form a toxic and combustible gas.

Police say Byrne told them he was a “sovereign national” and refused to provide identification. The case is being investigated by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
