He shot at police and gets 20 years in prison

SANDPOINT, Idaho - A north Idaho man who authorities say engaged in a drug-fueled crime spree that crossed state lines was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

27-year-old Steven Michael Gervasi was sentenced Tuesday. The Bonner Daily Bee says he reached a plea agreement, which reduced the charges against him to aggravated assault on a law officer, burglary, grand theft, unlawful firearm possession and methamphetamine possession.

Gervasi was charged with a number of crimes in Idaho and Washington.  Authorities say the crime spree started with a burglary, a robbery, a shooting and arson in rural Idaho in May 2016.

A Bonner County deputy then pursued Gervasi into eastern Washington. Authorities say Gervasi fired upon the deputy and escaped. He was arrested a few days later.
