Yesterday Wayne Odegard was sentenced to six months in jail and five years probation for firing a BB gun at two men outside of the Saloon in downtown Minneapolis this summer.

According to the charges, Odegard was furious after he saw two men kissing on the sidewalk outside of the Saloon a little after 11 p.m. on September 25. He called the two men "fucking faggots," whipped out a BB gun, and fired several shots at the couple, hitting one man in the leg.

Odegard pleaded guilty to one count of making terroristic threats October 27. The judge increased his probation period from three years to five years because the crime was based on sexual orientation.

Odegard will also have to undergo chemical dependency and psychological evaluations and attend anger management class. If he violates any of the conditions of his probation, he could be sent to prison for a year and a day.
