AUGUSTA (AP) – A North Waterboro man faces a year in jail for creating an armed standoff in April at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Augusta.

Phillip Urquhart, 42, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Kennebec County Superior Court to reckless conduct with a firearm, a felony, and criminal threatening, a misdemeanor. A terrorizing count was dismissed.

Urquhart was accused of placing up to nine people in jeopardy last April by waving pistol at them inside the store.

He was sentenced to five years in jail with all but one year suspended, and two years of probation.
