SALT LAKE CITY -- A man shot and wounded in a standoff with police will serve up to five years in prison.

Robert Edward Holliday pleaded guilty to charges of aggravated assault and domestic violence in front of a child for striking the mother of the children in front of them at the couple's Taylorsville home last August.

When police arrived to investigate the incident Holliday pulled out a pellet gun -- which looks similar to a handgun -- causing officers to shoot him.

He recovered from his injuries, and the officers returned to duty after an investigation.
