BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Buffalo man who illegally possessed a weapon and led police on a chase was sentenced.
In November of last year, Jason Bishop, 30, had a dispute with his girlfriend while on Townsend St.
While arguing with her, her pulled out a pistol and shot it into the air.
When police responded to a report of shots fired, they found Bishop leaving the scene in a vehicle. This led to a high-speed chase until Bishop crashed his car and ran away on foot.
Police were able to chase him down and arrest him without incident.
Bishop, who had left a weapon in his car’s center console, pleaded guilty to criminal possession of a weapon in August.
He was sentenced to five years in jail and five years of post-release supervision.
