A Sioux City man who was shot by police during a standoff in March of this year has been sentenced to 10 days in jail in a plea agreement.

44-year-old Lee Fischer pleaded guilty Tuesday to domestic abuse assault.

Fischer also received a suspended five-year prison sentence for a charge of intimidation with a dangerous weapon, was given three years’ probation and ordered to continue substance abuse treatment.

Prosecutors dropped a charge of assaulting a police officer.

Police were called March 5th to a St. Mary’s Street residence for a man firing a gun inside his home while his ex-wife was there.

Fischer emerged from the home hours later with a gun and was shot in the shoulder by an officer when he refused to drop it.

The woman was not injured.
