The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1tjl0gP ) Joseph Reed will spend two years under supervision. He pleaded guilty in August to false impersonation, aggravated assault, fleeing from officers and refusing a drug test.

Deputies arrested Reed after he attached a siren and lights to his truck and pulled over a security guard. They started chasing Reed’s vehicle after the guard became suspicious and drove off.

Reed was captured after he called 911 and claimed his vehicle was stolen and he was lost in a field.

The judge also ordered reed to complete 200 hours of community service and write an apology letter to the security guard.
