LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles man who climbed onto the roofs of homes after a police chase, then barricaded himself in a home with a rifle before being arrested, has been sentenced to 33 years in state prison.

Nolan Perez pleaded no contest in June to charges including assault on a peace officer with a semiautomatic weapon, criminal threats against an ex-girlfriend and attempted carjacking.

City News Service reports the 42-year-old was sentenced Tuesday.

The June 2014 chase began after police tried to arrest Perez on a warrant. He took off on a high-speed pursuit that ultimately ended with the barricade situation. Authorities shut down nearby freeway ramps and locked down schools as police waited him out.

He was arrested when SWAT officers fired a gas canister into the home.
