MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A man convicted of an assault on two deputies of the U.S. Marshals Service in Minnesota has been sentenced to two years in prison.

A federal judge also ordered 27-year-old Shawn Olthoff Tuesday to pay nearly $7,000 in restitution.

The deputies were attempting to arrest Olthoff last October in North Branch for violating terms of his supervised release on a prior federal offense.

Olthoff and his girlfriend tried to flee. Deputies blocked their vehicle, the woman surrendered, but Olthoff rammed the deputies’ squads and took off.

Olthoff hit a number of other vehicles before he fled on foot. He was captured the next day.
