Billings man gets 25 years in prison for shooting
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) -- A Liberian refugee convicted of shooting at a
Billings man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.
The Billings Gazette reports 27-year-old Robert Zlahn was sentenced
Friday to 20 years in prison with five suspended for felony assault with a
weapon for shooting at former Carroll College football player and body
builder Ryan Grosulak in July 2011. Grosulak had told Zlahn and another
man to leave his girlfriend alone.
The woman told police a van followed her and a man inside said, "Hey
baby" and asked if she wanted to "get some later."
Zlahn was given a consecutive 10-year sentence for criminal endangerment
because the shots were fired across three lanes of traffic. No one was injured.
Zlahn also was given a concurrent five-year term for possession of heroin and
marijuana in an unrelated case.
