GROESBECK, Texas (AP) — A driver arrested following a chase that left two Texas game wardens hurt has been sentenced to 50 years in prison in a road hunting and assault case.
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department on Saturday announced the penalty for Teddy Wayne Davenport in last October's incident.
A Limestone County jury on Friday convicted Davenport of two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, burglary of a building and evading arrest.
The game wardens were watching for illegal road hunting when they saw a vehicle being driven with its lights off. That vehicle rammed the law enforcement vehicle. The patrol vehicle later hit a culvert.
Davenport received 50 years on each assault count, plus 10 years for each of the other counts. The prison terms will be served concurrently.
