Steven Cowan, 68, who resigned from the town of Vermont Board of Supervisors in December, pleaded no contest Monday to misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and negligent handling of a weapon and a felony count of failing to comply with a police officer's orders, the Wisconsin State Journal, Madison, reported Wednesday.

Cowan received three years of probation for the misdemeanor counts and Dane County Circuit Judge Nicholas McNamara said the conviction for the felony charge will be withheld until the end of the probation. He said Cowan can ask for the charge to be dismissed if he completes his probation without violations or further incidents.

Cowan was arrested after he shot at his TV due to being angered by Bristol Palin's performance on "Dancing with the Stars." The shooting led to a 15-hour standoff with police when he refused to exit his home.
