The man who left a loaded shotgun at the Grand Forks Herald newspaper and then had police on a six hour standoff was sentenced to around three months in jail, but 22-year-old Philip Manaigre can serve the time on electronic home monitoring.

Police went to Manaigre's house in the Columbia Court Trailer park in Grand Forks in March to arrest him for leaving the gun that was found at the Herald.

Manaigre wouldn't come out for more than 6 hours.

A negotiator and SWAT team members were called in to help, and police tried several different things to get Manaigre out of his home, including two "flash-bangs," shooting out his windows with bean bag rounds, and tear gas.

Officers were finally able to arrest him after breaking down his door.

Manaigre will also be on supervised probation for 18 months.
