A Grove City man who was accused of trying to run over a state trooper has learned his fate on Friday.

John Barlow Jr., 60, was convicted in March of aggravated assault of a law enforcement official, resisting arrest, reckless endangering, and driving with a suspended license.

He was sentenced to six and a half to 27 years in prison on these charges.

The jury that delivered the verdict found Barlow not guilty of attempted murder, as well as three assault charges.

The charges stem from an incident where Barlow allegedly led state troopers on a chase while they were to serve a warrant for his arrest on May 15, 2022. According to the police report, Barlow drove off-road and officers lost sight of him for a time.

Reports say officers found Barlow a considerable distance down the roadway and ordered him to get out of the car. That's when Barlow drove towards an officer, causing him to shoot at the car.

He evaded police but was later arrested in Butler County.
