A Hart area man no longer stands ac­cused of fir­ing a shot at a woman.

A count of dis­charg­ing a firearm with an at­tempt to wound or dis­fig­ure against Colin Wayne Hall was stayed Mon­day dur­ing a hear­ing in Prince Ge­orge pro­vin­cial court.

He was ar­rested dur­ing the early morn­ing of April 11, 2017, when RCMP were called to a 2800-block High­way 97 home, near Bel­lamy Road.

A por­tion of High­way 97 was closed for about 15 min­utes as a pre­cau­tion. A dog team was called in and Hall was lo­cated within a few min­utes. Hall and the woman are known to each other and no in­juries were re­ported, RCMP said at the time.

Hall must still serve three years pro­ba­tion and was is­sued a five-year firearms pro­hi­bi­tion for one count each of care­less use or stor­age of a firearm and pos­sess­ing a weapon for dan­ger­ous pur­poses. He was also cred­ited with 120 days time served on those counts.

He was also sen­tenced to 60 days time served and to seven days time served for as­sault­ing a peace of­fi­cer and breach­ing an un­der­tak­ing or re­cog­ni­zance from in­ci­dents on Sept. 2 and 3.

And he was as­sessed $800 in vic­tim sur­charges on the con­vic­tions.

A count of un­law­ful dis­charge of a firearm was also stayed.
