PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Pawtucket man with a criminal history has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for aiming a loaded gun at Providence police officers.
Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Kilmartin announced the sentencing of 21-year-old Trenton Keith on Tuesday.
Keith was in a vehicle that led police on a chase June 7 in Providence.
Keith got out of the car’s back seat and pointed a firearm at the officers.
The officers, seeing the firearm, struck Keith with their cruiser.
Keith fled on foot and tossed what was later determined to be a loaded handgun into a trash can.
Keith pleaded no contest in 2013 to stabbing a 16-year-old boy eight times.
He was sentenced to five years in prison, suspended for probation.
He pleaded no contest in 2015 to forgery and counterfeiting.
