    A man accused of assault with deadly weapon and multiple counts of negligently discharging a firearm during a SWAT standoff at his apartment in Oceanside last month will serve time behind bars.

    Robert Bredewege, 63, was sentenced Monday to 120 days in jail with three years of formal probation. He will spend 32 days in jail, after receiving credit for 88 days already served.

    He pleaded guilty to blasting a shotgun inside his Oceanside apartment in a Feb. 5 SWAT standoff that lasted for three hours. Police received reports of gunfire at 1:25 p.m. that day at Bredewege's apartment on N. Freeman.

    Both the Oceanside Police Department's SWAT Team and the Crisis Negotiations Team (CNT) went to the scene, and evacuated neighbors near the apartment.

    CNT was able to persuade Bredewege to come outside, and he was taken into custody about three hours later.

    Nobody was injured in the standoff, and it was not clear why Bredewege was firing the gun inside his apartment.
