MACY, Neb. -- A Macy man was sentenced Thursday in federal court for assaulting an officer last year. 

35-year-old Santana McCauley was sentenced to 28 months imprisonment for assaulting an officer in 2021. 

After his release from federal prison, he will begin a three-year term of supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system. 

It was reported that on Dec. 2, 2021, in Macy, McCauley refused to pull over in his vehicle and fled from officers. He drove through a backyard, onto a sidewalk, and later drove at a police car. 

In a press release it was stated that after McCauley finally stopped his vehicle, he ran from officers into a residence.

Officials said that once they handcuffed McCauley, he headbutted an officer. 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Omaha Nation Law Enforcement Services.
