By  | 

HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - The Hastings man who threatened customers with a gun in a grocery store parking lot has some prison time ahead of him.

Paul Frazier, 20, was sentenced Wednesday to up to eight years in prison for convictions on felony terroristic threats and possession of a stolen firearm.

Prosecutors dropped two other felony charges and one other misdemeanor charge.

On November 2, 2017, Hastings Police responded to a disturbance of a man waving a handgun and threatening people in the Russ's Market parking lot.

Police said Frazier took off running into traffic. He was eventually caught in the Walgreen's parking lot where he then resisted arrest.

A police officer was treated for a broken finger that resulted from the scuffle.

In addition to the sentence for the grocery store incident, Frazier was also sentenced to up to six years in prison on a separate felony drug possession conviction.
