NORTHAMPTON, Mass. — A Massachusetts man who got away with $5 when he robbed a pizza delivery driver has been sentenced to 2 ½ years in jail.

The Daily Hampshire Gazette (http://bit.ly/2xmwpJv ) reports that 20-year-old Aaron Dakota Fogg was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon and larceny.

Prosecutors say the Belchertown man pointed a BB gun at the side of the driver’s head on the night of June 6, after approaching him and asking for change. The driver handed over $5, which was all he had at the time.

Fogg was arrested two days later at his home. He originally pleaded not guilty, and was held without bail after being ruled a dangerous person.
