(AP) — A 43-year-old man has been given six to eight years in prison for pulling a gun and making threats outside a strip club in south-central Nebraska.

William “Will” Sheldon was sentenced last week in Buffalo County District Court. He’d been found guilty of using a weapon to commit a felony, tampering with evidence and making terroristic threats.

Prosecutors say that on June 3 last year, Sheldon pointed a handgun and threatened two brothers during a fight outside the Jammers club, which sat near the Odessa interchange on Interstate 80 west of Kearney. Sheldon owned and operated the club.

Prosecutors say Sheldon tampered with video surveillance equipment at the club after the incident.

Sheldon intends to appeal.
