Man gets 5 years in Iowa prison for ramming police vehicles

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A Sioux City man accused of ramming police cars on a chase that began in Nebraska has been sentenced to five more years in an Iowa prison.
Woodbury County court records say 43-year-old Larry Johnson II pleaded guilty to felony eluding after prosecutors dropped an assault charge. His plea agreement says the sentence must be served after the remainder of his 15-year sentence for forgery. He was on parole when the chase occurred July 6.
The Nebraska State Patrol says a Nebraska trooper tried to stop Johnson’s pickup truck being pursued by South Sioux City police. Officials say the truck rammed the trooper’s car before crossing into Iowa.
Officials say the truck again rammed both the trooper’s car and a sheriff’s vehicle before becoming stuck on a median.
His Nebraska case is pending.
