A Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to six months in jail for violating a restraining order that had been issued against him.
The state attorney general says the man violated the order after he refused to stop his vehicle at the end of the highway.
A judge ordered him to pay a $1,000 fine and pay restitution to the state.
In the latest twist, the attorney general said the man was ordered to turn over his firearm in court after he was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated and driving with an expired license.
Prosecutors say that driver, Robert Horne, has been driving a Dodge Durango since May 31.
He has since been arrested on two counts of aggravated assault and two counts, one for domestic battery.
A second charge of disorderly conduct was dropped.
Prosecutors said Horne was intoxicated and did not have a valid license.
He was arrested after a judge ordered the driver to stop at the Pennsylvania State Police barracks in Lehigh County.
The officer who stopped Horne’s car said he smelled marijuana, according to prosecutors.
Horne told officers he was under the influence of marijuana and was driving because he had a medical emergency, according the prosecutor’s office.
He refused to show them his driver’s license.
Hennes was taken into custody and later released on $10,000 bail.
He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and possession of marijuana.
The prosecutor said that Horne admitted to having marijuana in his car when he was pulled over on Interstate 95 on Friday.
He said he had taken it to his home in Leonton and was getting high.
He also admitted to making a false statement to a state trooper, the prosecutor said.
Horsley was charged with possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, driving while under the effects of drugs and failure to stop for a police officer.
The judge who sentenced Horne said he was in a “good and decent” state of mind, but that his driving was impaired.
“I’m a good person.
I’m not a bad person,” he said.
He told the judge that he is a father and had been married for five years.
The sentencing will be on March 31, according, to the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office, but the judge’s office said it will not make any decision about the outcome of the case until March 31.
