On Thursday, Douglas Fulk, 32, Brazil, was sentenced to 23 years in the Indiana Department of Correction after a plea agreement was reached in the case.
Fulk was scheduled for a jury trial Feb. 13, in Vigo County Superior Court 6, before the agreement was reached.
On Jan. 19, the State of Indiana and Fulk's legal counsel appeared before Judge Michael Lewis saying they had reached a plea agreement.
On Thursday, Lewis accepted the plea agreement and sentenced Fulk to 20 years on a count of Aggravated Battery (a class D felony) and three years on a count of Resisting Law Enforcement (a class D felony).
Prior to the agreement, Fulk was also facing a charge of Attempted Murder (a class A felony), three more counts of Aggravated Battery, Burglary (a class B felony), Intimidation (a class D felony), two more counts of Resisting Law Enforcement, Criminal Recklessness (a class D felony) and two counts of Carrying a Handgun Without a License (a class A misdemeanor).
Fulk was also recently sentenced to a two-year sentence in Clay County for violating probation after being charged with the incidents in Vigo County.
Fulk was given credit for 742 days already served in the Vigo County Jail.
He was arrested Jan. 21, 2010, after a police chase involving gunfire and a home invasion, which resulted in a standoff with Vigo County Law Enforcement.
According to reports, police recognized Fulk driving a suspect vehicle and attempted to initiate a traffic stop before the chase ensued on Fruitridge Avenue near Wabash Avenue.
During the chase, Fulk exchanged gunfire with police.
Fulk eventually left the vehicle and ran into a home, refusing to come out.
After two hours, Fulk surrendered to police.
