CORNING, Calif. - A man was sentenced to nine years and eight months in state prison on Monday for attempting to run over a game warden with his car in September of 2018.

Phien Khamsavang, 35, of Orland, pleaded guilty to one count of attempted murder and one felony count of resisting a peace officer with violence. 

The attack happened on Sept. 3, 2018, when a fish and game warden was checking Khamsavang's fishing license. 

The warden discovered that Khamsavang had multiple outstanding warrants and attempted to arrest him on the warrants. 

He was not cooperative and the warden failed in multiple attempts to subdue him. 

Khamsavang was able to get into his vehicle and attempted to run over the warden. However, the warden was able to get into his car just before he was about to hit him. 

Khamsavang fled the area in the car until it became disabled a short distance away. He then fled on foot westbound on South Avenue before being captured by other Game Warden Officers from the California Highway Patrol.
