A Michigan man who once belonged to a costumed band of self-professed real-life superheroes has been sentenced to time served in jail after pleading guilty in a deal with prosecutors.

Adam Besso was nicknamed "Bee Sting" and pleaded June 22 to a misdemeanor charge of attempted assault with a weapon. The agreement with prosecutors calls for the 36-year-old Sterling Heights man to be released after sentencing.

Besso apologized at his court appearance Monday before formally receiving the sentence of 102 days already served and two years' probation.

Authorities say Besso's shotgun fired in April as he struggled with a man at a trailer park in the Flint suburb of Burton.

Police say he was wearing a bulletproof vest, black leather jacket with a bee logo, shin guards and knee pads.
