FRANKLINTON, LA (WVUE) -

A former Bogalusa City Councilman pleaded guilty Monday to aggravated assault of a police officer stemming from an incident in which he pointed a shotgun at an officer.

Daniel Stogner called police about a disturbance at his home in Angie on March 28, 2014. When officers responded, Stogner became hostile, disrupting the investigation. He approached an officer, cursing at him, prosecutors said.

The officer tried to arrest Stogner, who ran into his home, got a shotgun and pointed it at deputies. An officer was able to stun Stogner with a Taser, which caused the former city official to drop his weapon. Stogner was arrested and charged.

Judge Richard Swartz sentenced Stogner to a suspended five years in prison, as well as five years of probation, a $1,000 fine and court costs. Swartz also ordered Stogner to give up his weapon, undergo a mental health evaluation and have no contact with the victims.
