Cody Adams


BUFFALO CENTER — A man accused of firing a gun outside a Buffalo Center bar and threatening patrons with a knife and brass knuckles has accepted a plea bargain and will serve seven days in jail. 

The Winnebago County Attorney's Office agreed to drop a felony charge of intimidation with a dangerous weapon against Cody Ronald Adams, 25, Buffalo Center.

In exchange Adams pleaded guilty to one count of carrying weapons and one count of assault. Both are misdemeanors. 

Police were dispatched about 2:15 a.m. April 5 to a report of a suicidal man firing a gun outside Oranges Bar, 309 Fifth Ave. S.W.

Adams allegedly told Buffalo Center police he fired a shot into the air from a handgun loaded with self-defense ammunition.

A .40-caliber Smith and Wesson was found in his truck, according to court documents.

Adams also was accused of threatening patrons with a knife and brass knuckles weapons in the bar parking lot.

One victim had two small cuts on his hand, court documents state.

Adams was sentenced last week to 365 days in jail with all but seven days suspended on the carrying weapons charge and two days in jail on the assault charge. The sentences are to be served concurrently.

Adams was ordered to pay fines of $625 and $65 and was put on probation for two years. Victim restitution will be determined at a later date.
