A Juneau man has received a six-month jail sentence for pointing a fake gun at a store employee.

Forty-three-year-old Lee A. Grierson was sentenced Wednesday in Juneau Superior Court after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of assault.

Authorities said on Nov. 11, Veterans Day, Grierson wore white camouflage when he went into the Mendenhall Valley Breeze In grocery store.

The Juneau Empire reports (http://is.gd/rQCAX8) he walked behind the counter after talking to a clerk, and pulled a black handgun from his side and yelled "Freeze!" Court documents say he held the gun on her for about two seconds while in a shooting stance. He then wished her a "Happy Veterans Day."

Since he's been in jail since the November incident, he has served his sentence.
