LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -- A McLouth man will be sentenced Dec. 18 for trying to run over a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper.
The Kansas City Star reported Tuesday that 33-year-old Kevin Reed was found guilty of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer in Leavenworth County.
The Leavenworth County prosecutor says the trooper tried to stop a car on May 22 for a traffic violation but the driver drove off. The trooper found the vehicle behind a barn with Reed at the wheel. When the trooper ordered him at gunpoint to get out of the car, Reed drove toward him.
The trooper fired four shots but the Reed continued driving. He eventually abandoned the car and was later found hiding in a barn.
The trooper was not seriously injured.
