Man sentenced for police chase, shooting

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Cincinnati man was sentenced Tuesday after he was possessing a firearm after a chase in 2007.

Ramone Anderson, 28, of Cincinnati, was sentenced to 293 months in prison.

A jury convicted Anderson on November 5, 2009 after a three-day trial on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

According to testimony presented during the trial, Cincinnati Police officers Eric Priestle and Dwight Pewett responded to a call at the Golden Nugget Lounge on Queen City Avenue on October 11, 2007 following reports that there was a fight in the parking lot. At some time during the fight Anderson ended up with a firearm and fired off several rounds. A girl was cut by breaking glass from one of the shots. As police approached, Anderson fled the area and led the police in a high speed chase through town. He was apprehended after he crashed his car in a parking lot near Harrison and Patterson avenues. Officers found the gun beside his vehicle.

Evidence included positive results from a gunshot residue test conducted on Anderson's hand shortly after the arrest. Anderson's prior criminal record included convictions in Hamilton County Common Pleas court for aggravated Assault in 2000, Felonious Assault in 2001 and Robbery in 2001.
