Washington man sentenced for firearms violations in oilfield mancamp fight

BISMARCK — A Washington state man who was arrested after a fight at an oilfield man camp has been sentenced on an illegal weapons charge.

Forty-seven-year-old Victor Fields, of Pasco, Wash., pleaded guilty in December to possession of firearm and ammunition by a person convicted of domestic violence.

Authorities say Fields was in possession of a loaded .357 pistol during the September 2011 altercation at the Knife River man camp near Williston.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland sentenced Fields to one year and nine months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release.
