ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man accused of threatening to shoot someone is taking a plea deal.
Joseph Vincent Hollins, 39 of Rochester, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a reduced charge of threats of violence. He had been accused of 2nd degree assault and possession of a firearm after being convicted of a crime of violence for a September 3, 2018, incident in the parking lot of the North Star Bar.
Authorities say Hollins got into an argument, hit someone in the head with a gun, and threatened to shoot someone.
His sentencing is set for May 11.
