Man who pulled a gun on US Capitol sentenced to a term of imprisonment

WASHINGTON – A man who is a weapon at a security checkpoint at the visitor center of the Capitol last year has been sentenced to 11 months in prison.

Prosecutors said in a news release that the 67-year-old Larry Russell Dawson of Antioch, Tennessee, was sentenced Monday in federal court in Washington. He has been ordered to mental health.

Dawson had earlier argued for a amount of assault, resisting, or impeding officers during the use of a deadly or dangerous weapon.

An officer shot Dawson on March 28, 2016, after he pulled out a BB gun that looked like a gun at the checkpoint.

Dawson was Monday sentenced to 90 days in prison for an earlier incident in which he disrupted Congress and not back to court.
