CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A man who shot his friend with a bow and three arrows was sentenced Tuesday.

Harry Spivey received the maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

Spivey pled guilty to attempted murder and felonious assault charges in November. He admitted to shooting his friend, Doug Stacey, three times in September at Stacey's Elmwood Place home.

Spivey had been staying at Stacey's house when the incident happened. Stacey said he was asleep when it happened and he doesn't know why Spivey did it.

Spivey fled after the shooting and later turned himself in to police in Georgia.

Spivey thought he had killed Stacey, Assistant Prosecutor Rick Gibson said. Stacey pretended to be dead after he was shot.

"I'm sorry the whole thing happened," Spivey told the judge.

Spivey's attorney, Roger Bouchard, said Spivey was high on cocaine and other drugs at the time of the shooting. 

A message was left at Bouchard's office Tuesday.

Spivey had said at an earlier hearing that Stacey had given him drugs and punched him, causing him to "lose it." Stacey denied those allegations.

"He shot me for no reason," said Stacey, who says he gets physical therapy and has to have at least one more operation.
