An eastern Nebraska man has been sentenced to several years in prison for an incident in March that involved a police officer using a Taser on him.

38-year-old Robert Bures was sentenced Thursday to three to six years on charges of attempted second-degree assault, terroristic threats and driving under a revoked license conviction.

Police say Bures rammed his vehicle into his estranged wife's car before fleeing into the woods. He was accused of ignoring orders from an officer to drop a box cutter.

The officer eventually deployed the Taser on Bures and arrested him.

Bures' attorney says his client has struggled with undiagnosed mental health problems.
