Minnesota man involved in a standoff with deputies in Larimore last October has been sentenced to more than two years in prison.

Branden Kuck of Deer River was accused of hitting his wife and firing a handgun several times inside his family's recreational vehicle, after he had been drinking.


Authorities say Kuck later emerged from the RV with the gun, scuffled with deputies and was eventually subdued. No one was seriously hurt.
