A Sebree man is sentenced to spend a decade and a half behind bars.
Kentucky State Police say in February officers and deputies responded to a report of shots fired into a home in Clay, KY.
When authorities arrived at the scene investigators say Branson struck a deputy with his vehicle and fired more shots into the home.
Troopers say officers exchanged gunfire with the suspect, but no one was hit.
Authorities say Branson led them on a car chase that ended on KY 132 near the county road department when his car got a flat tire and he surrendered.
The deputy who was hit by the vehicle was treated and released at Baptist Health in Madisonville.
The Commonwealth Attorney's office says Branson was sentenced on multiple charges:
Officials say the multiple sentencings will run concurrently for a total of 15 years.
The Commonwealth Attorney's office says Branson is also ordered to pay restitution for property damage to the homeowner.
Branson was also arrested in July 2013 in connection to an arson investigation.
