Lyle man sentenced for pointing gun at police


AUSTIN, Minn. (KTTC) -- A Lyle man who admitted to hiding in a cornfield and pointing a gun at a deputy was sentenced Wednesday.

The incident happened in July of 2012, when law enforcement responded to a domestic disturbance near Lyle. After deputies arrived, Brian Jansen went missing.

According to the Mower County Sheriff's Office, he hid in a neighbors cornfield while carrying a shotgun.

Deputies tasered Jansen and after he was transported to Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin, he was taken to Mower County Jail, where he's been since last July.

He was sentenced Wednesday to 5 years probation and one year and one day in jail. Jansen will have credit for the time he's served in jail since the incident.

His five years probation began in November.

Jansen was released Wednesday morning and will move into a half-way house Wednesday afternoon.
