The Defiance man who led police in a pursuit back in November decided to waive his right to a jury trial in Defiance County and was sentenced to prison.
It was ruled that Cameron Butler will get a 10-year prison term for assault and more from the incident in which prosecutors say he intentionally struck a city police cruiser outside the police department on Perry Street.
Butler then left the scene, failed to stop when ordered by officers and led them on a pursuit in Defiance. Several police cruisers and privately owned cars were damaged in the chase.
