GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — A Goodyear man has been sentenced to six months of probation for disrupting a polling place nearly two years ago.

Arizona prosecutors say 39-year-old Brad Luebke was convicted of videotaping inside a polling place in Goodyear. They say Luebke went to Desert Springs Community Church in November 2018 with a holstered BB gun and a camera.

Workers explained to Luebke that he needed to remove the items from the polling place in order to vote. But Luebke refused.

Officers found Luebke outside the church with a cellphone camera on a specialized mount with a microphone attached. Luebke pleaded guilty Tuesday. Besides probation, he was fined $400.
