(AP) — A 19-year-old man who acknowledged trying to run down a woman and her boyfriend in Lincoln has been sentenced to prison.

Online court records say Mark Kometscher Jr. was sentenced on Monday to two consecutive terms of 20 months to 36 months. He’d pleaded no contest to two felony counts of terroristic threats after prosecutors dropped two felony assault counts.

Police say Kometscher told officers that he was so angry at the woman that he tried to run her and her boyfriend over on Oct. 16. The couple told officers Kometscher tried to hit them with his car several times and at one point got out and pointed a gun at them, threatening to shoot. He didn’t, and officers later found a black BB gun in the car.
