A Binghamton man will spend several years behind bars after he pleaded guilty to charges of Reckless Endangerment in the 1st degree and Burglary in the 3rd degree.

The Broome County District Attorney says these charges stem from an incident last September when Nicholas J. Tucker illegally entered a Town of Union home and engaged in a physical altercation with the occupants.

The DA says Tucker admitted he also left the house, retrieved a handgun from his car, threatened the occupants and fired two shots in the air before fleeing the scene.

The handgun was found in a nearby yard after Tucker discarded it.

Tucker will be sentenced to two and a third to seven years in state prison on each charge in June and the sentences will be served concurrently.
