SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A 36-year-old man has been sentenced to more than 28 years in prison for a 2013 assault that prosecutors say stemmed from his anger over a botched drink.

The Sacramento Bee reports that Jovan Felix was sentenced Friday for the near-fatal stabbing of a doorman outside Sacramento night club Level Up.

Prosecutors say Felix was angry about a bad drink and poor service when he returned to the club at about 2 a.m. with a friend and assaulted three people.

Sacramento Superior Court Judge Robert Twiss called Felix's criminal career "extensive."

Prosecutors say Felix recruited his friend Cornelius Jones to help him carry out the attack. They say the two teamed up as youths for an armed robbery.

Twiss called Felix the "leader" of the 2013 attack.
