Less than a month after fleeing from police leaving a trail of items in his wake, Robert F. Bazan resolved his case on Tuesday.
Appearing in criminal court Bazan agreed he was guilty of reckless endangerment, evading arrest, aggravated assault and vandalism.
As a result of his plea, Bazan was sentenced to 90 days in jail with credit for time served. After serving his sentence, he will spend six years on probation, according to court records. Bazan is also responsible for reimbursing the Jacksboro Police Department for damage he caused to a patrol car as he fled.
His charges stemmed from a pursuit with police that the JPD picked up when Lake City Police abandoned its part of the pursuit. When Officer Zachary Graves attempted to stop the 2005 Chevy Tahoe that Bazan was a passenger in, items began to fly from a rear window, the report said. Among these objects were bags, clothes, bolt cutters and pieces of wood.
When some of the items struck Graves’ patrol car the windshield was busted and paint chipped from the hood.
After being arrested Bazan admitted to authorities that he was the one who was discarding the items, JPD records said.
