LUDINGTON — A 60-year-old Fountain man was sentenced to serve 90 days in jail up front of a one-year discretionary term for a conviction of attempted felonious assault in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Jan. 5.

Thomas Lee Tribble, of 4851 N. Cleveland St., pleaded guilty to the charge last November. Tribble initially faced felony counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and felony firearm and two misdemeanor counts of second-offense domestic violence stemming from an Aug. 1 incident in the Village of Fountain.

Tribble’s conviction of attempted felonious assault is a high-court misdemeanor.

Tribble, who does not have a lengthy criminal history, brandished a long gun, Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola said. No one was injured in the incident, Spaniola added.

“The circumstances of this case show a civil dispute that got out of hand,” said Judge Susan K. Sniegowski.

Tribble, who was credited for 10 days served in jail, was also ordered to one year probation.
