THE man involved in a high-speed car chase which ended in the Lockyer Valley last year has been sentenced to time in prison.
Brassall man Shane Ruben Davis appeared in Ipswich District Court last week charged with 35 offences including multiple counts of burglary, burglary with violence, serious assault of police, obstruct police, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, driving under the influence and tainted property charges.
On April 30 last year, Davis, driving a stolen silver utility, led police on a chase which included the Brisbane and Lockyer valleys.
He was wanted in relation to a violent burglary on the Sunshine Coast.
Police from Gatton were in pursuit of the vehicle when it crashed on Woodlands Rd.
Davis then ran from the scene, with a police officer giving chase.
He attempted to remove the officer's firearm from his holster during the pursuit.
The officer was forced to use capsicum spray and deploy a taser.
Davis has been sentenced to a total of five years' imprisonment with no recommendation for parole.
