Sean Anderson, who was one of the final four individuals holed up at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon earlier this year says he is “very embarrassed” and “very ashamed” by his behavior, according to a report from the Oregonian.

Anderson had been a major character during the standoff, cutting several videos where he proclaimed to preparing for a “bloodbath” with authorities and another one where he allegedly shot his gun into the air saying “keep your eye in the sky.”

Anderson apologized during a court appearance in Portland.

“I was very embarrassed,” Anderson told the court according to the Oregonian. “I am very ashamed of it.”

Anderson was released and allowed to go back to Riggins, Idaho to see his wife, according to the Oregonian. Although he is under strict orders not to use any type of social media or make any threats against her. The newspaper also reported that he is the 14th occupier who has been released as he awaits his trial trial on federal conspiracy charges.
