Tyler Bohn, Sherwood, sentenced for menacing
Tyler William Bohn, 26, Sherwood, who had originally been charged with Class C felony terrorizing and had been accused of threatening another man with a pellet gun in northwest Ward County on March 12, pleaded guilty on April 16 to a reduced charge of Class A misdemeanor menacing in district court in Minot.
Court records show that Bohn was sentenced to 360 days, all suspended but the 35 days he has served in jail, and two years of supervised probation. Bohn was also ordered to pay $625 in court costs and to have no contact with the victim.
According to the probable cause affidavit filed with the court, the victim and a friend had gone to the address to buy a television. Bohn was the roommate of the person who owns the television, but the roommate was in jail at the time. When they arrived, the victim got into an argument with Bohn and Bohn told the victim that “someone is going to get shot in the head tonight.” He said Bohn then pulled out a handgun and held it to the victim’s chest. The victim told police he was afraid for his safety. The television was in the back of the victim’s pickup.
A Ward County deputy and a Burlington police officer met and spoke with Bohn. Bohn claimed the alleged victim “came at him” while Bohn’s hands were in his pockets. Bohn told the law enforcement officers that he “blacked out” and told the victim to back up and then Bohn pulled out his pistol in an attempt to scare the victim. Bohn told authorities that the weapon he brandished was a pellet gun.
Authorities took the pellet gun and a .22-caliber revolver into evidence.
