TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – A Lafayette man gets a five year sentence after charging at police with a knife last year.

Prosecutors said Hakeem Evans, 20, pleaded guilty to intimidation while armed with a deadly weapon. They said in December 2013, two officers reported to the scene of a fight on Alabama Street in Lafayette. Police told Evans to drop the knife, but had to use a stun gun on Evans after he went after an officer wielding the knife.

A witness told police the incident started after Evans had a disagreement with his girlfriend.

Evans will spend two years behind bars and three years on probation.
