ALBANY, N.Y.—A Ravena man was sentenced to two to four years in State Prison on Friday.

Shawn Ingersoll, 35, pleaded guilty to one Count of Attempted Assault in the second degree.

After receiving a call of a domestic incident on June 1, 2013, officers responded and approached the residence. Ingersoll opened the door but refused to go outside after being told he was under arrest.

Officers went inside, at which point Ingersoll shoved an officer to the ground before fleeing the residence.

One of the officers fractured her leg and tore several ligaments.

"Mr. Ingersoll had the choice to surrender peacefully and without incident. Instead, he repeatedly failed to obey the officer's instructions and attempted to flee the scene, which resulted in an injury to an officer. I hope Mr. Ingersoll spends the next several years in his state prison cell reflecting upon the choices he has made and where he has ended up because of them," said District Attorney David Soares.
