ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man who pulled out a replica handgun at a Rochester restaurant has been given two years of probation.

25-year-old Nicholas David Auringer of Rochester was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct and carrying a BB gun in a public place.  In addition to the probation, he was also ordered to do 50 hours of community service or pay a $500 fine.

Auringer and a 15-year-old boy were arrested on June 8 after police say they threatened someone with replica BB handguns.  The victim said he thought they were real, semiautomatic weapons.

Felony charges of 2nd degree assault, threats of violence and possession of a firearm after a crime of violence were dismissed in this case.
