Anderson, Calif - 

The Shasta County District Attorney's Office says Eric Hancock was sentenced to five years and eight months in prison. 

He pled guilty to Assault on a Peace Officer with a Deadly Weapon and DUI Causing Injury. On August 5, 2018, Hancock drove to the area of the Factory Outlets in Anderson to sell heroin. Hancock did not realize that the person he had planned to sell heroin to was actually an officer from the Anderson Police Department. Hancock fled the area in a vehicle and led law enforcement on a chase through the Walmart parking lot and back to the parking lot at the outlets. The chase ended when the defendant hit an occupied Anderson Police Department vehicle that was blocking his way. Both the Anderson Police Department officer and Hancock’s passenger were injured in the collision. This case was investigated by Anderson Police Department Officer Hallagan and Officer Duncan. It was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Rachel Donahou.

In addition to this case, Hancock is pending federal charges in an unrelated case involving firearms and drugs. That case was investigated by the Redding Police Department and will be prosecuted through the Project Safe Neighborhoods program by the Office of the United States Attorney.
