DETROIT (AP) ?? A federal judge in Detroit has sentenced a 35-year-old Detroit Lions fan to three years' probation for phoning in a bomb threat to the Louisiana Superdome during the New Orleans Saints' playoff win over the Lions in January.

Shawn H. Payton of Jackson pleaded guilty in June transmitting threats to injure in interstate communications.

Prosecutors say Payton twice called the Superdome during the Jan.7 game and claimed there was a bomb in the building.

Judge David Lawson sentenced him Thursday. Besides the probation, Payton also must serve 60 days of home confinement.
