GREAT FALLS -

Jimmy Lee Ellison, the Great Falls man who was involved in Monday's stand-off with police, had been sentenced on one count of theft last week.

On June 27th, Judge John Kutzman gave Ellison a three-year deferred sentence for the theft charge.

Ellison was back in court Friday afternoon for violating his probation on Monday, July 3rd.

According to court documents, Patrick Adams said that Ellison had broken into his room while he was away from the residence.

Adams said when he arrived home, Ellison was asleep in the living room with a shotgun in his lap and Adams took it from him.

An argument took place when Ellison took the gun back and proceeded to point it at Adams.

Adams left the residence and contacted police.

Officers did not enter the home due to the risk and eventually had to call in the High Risk Unit.

This resulted in having to evacuate the neighborhood, putting all involved at risk, according to court documents.

After about five hours Ellison left the home peacefully.

He is now charged with possession of a sawed-off shotgun and obstructing justice,
