TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A Tucson man who pointed a wooden rifle stock at a Pima County Sheriff's deputy responding to a domestic violence call has been sentenced to three years' probation.
   
County prosecutors say 21-year-old Cody Salzman pleaded guilty to attempted aggravated assault on a police officer for the January 2013 incident.
   
A deputy responded to a domestic dispute encountered Salzman, who pointed the rifle stock at him.
   
The deputy fired two shots at Salzman, but didn't hit him.
   
Salzman surrendered. He was sentenced Monday.
