PAOLI, Okla. (KXII) - An Oklahoma man accepted a plea deal Monday for multiple felony charges of assaulting a police officer.

The Paoli Police Department said in a Facebook post that Quinn Wykoff was sentenced to 15 years in prison and five years probation.

Police arrested Wykoff in June after he rammed a Paoli Police vehicle and fled the scene, leading to a statewide manhunt.

The police department said they went to arrest Wykoff on a felony warrant during a traffic stop when he began to fight them, pulling a knife before fleeing the scene.

The assistant police chief gave chase before Wykoff rammed his vehicle at a high rate of speed, disabling it. The officer suffered minor injuries.

Authorities took Wykoff into custody near Elmore City the next day.
