PHOENIX (AP) -- A Glendale man arrested in a shoplifting case that led to shots being fired has been sentenced to two years of probation.
A Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman said Michael John Hough was sentenced Tuesday by Karen Mullins on a conviction for solicitation to commit organized retail theft.
Hough and his wife, Shaashana Marie Hough, were arrested for allegedly trying to shoplift a drill from a Sears store at the Arrowhead Towne Center in January.
As an unarmed loss-prevention officer tried to detain them, Shaashana Hough allegedly drew a handgun from a backpack and pointed it at the officer.
The couple fled on a motorcycle as a passerby fired shots at them but didn't hit anyone.
