DALLAS (AP) — A man shot at a Dallas airport after threatening police with rocks has been sentenced to 10 years' probation.

Shawn Diamond pleaded guilty last month to felony aggravated assault of a public servant. Diamond reached a plea agreement and was released from county jail the following day.

Court documents show police shot the 30-year-old several times while trying to stop a dispute between Diamond and his ex-girlfriend. Diamond was throwing rocks at her car and hitting it with a traffic cone. The June 10, 2016, disturbance at the Dallas Love Field terminal caused a lockdown of the airport and hours of delays.

Under the plea deal, Diamond is forbidden to contact his ex-girlfriend during his probation and must participate in an anger management program.
