A man who threw a rock during the violent Lakers victory celebration in June was sentenced Friday to three years probation.

Giancarlo Quijada was among 48 people arrested outside the Staples Center after the Lakers won the championship game last June.

Some were charged with setting fires, trashing cars and breaking windows.

Guijada was convicted Thursday of resisting arrest. The judge placed him on three years probation Friday and ordered him to perform community service.
