NEWPORT, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man wounded by state police troopers following a high-speed chase could spend the rest of his life in prison if he’s found to be a habitual offender.

Orleans County prosecutors added the habitual offender enhancement to some of the charges already filed against 27-year-old Eric Jackson of Lyndon.

The Caledonian Record (https://bit.ly/1CDJCaL ) reports that on Monday a judge found probable cause to charge Jackson with two counts of aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer and other offenses.

Jackson was shot on May 28 after police say he repeatedly rammed two state police cruisers in Barton with the stolen car he was driving.

Orleans County State’s Attorney Alan Franklin asked a judge to move the case to Caledonia County.

Jackson’s attorney could not be immediately located.
