CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – A man from Youngstown was sentenced to ten years in prison for firearms violations in connection to an October altercation outside the Eastside Civic Center.

Brian K. Bellard, 43, was arrested Oct. 16 after Youngstown police responded to a call about an armed man arguing with people outside the club. When officers arrived, they found Bellard with a Smith and Wesson, .40 caliber pistol and ammunition, according to court documents.

Bellard is not allowed to own a firearm because of prior felonious assault and domestic violence convictions.

Bellard pleaded guilty last year to being a felon in possession of a firearm.
