DALLAS (AP) — A former Dallas police sergeant has been sentenced to four years of probation over an off-duty incident in which he was charged with pulling a gun and chasing a bar bouncer.

Hector Roa was put on administrative leave after the February 2010 incident outside a bar and later fired.

The Dallas Morning News (http://bit.ly/1cXDQ7v ) reported Wednesday that Roa recently pleaded no contest to aggravated assault over the drunken incident.

A bar owner and the bouncer told Dallas police that they ordered Roa to leave but he refused. The bouncer says Roa slugged him in the face before pulling a gun. Arriving officers arrested Roa, who had claimed self-defense.

Roa had worked with a task force responding to high-crime areas across Dallas.
