LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a man who overpowered a deputy and stole her police cruiser to 22 years in prison.

Tippecanoe Circuit Judge Thomas Busch on Tuesday accepted 25-year-old Marcus Bramlett’s guilty plea to charges of robbery, escape, battery on a police officer and disarming a police officer.

Busch sentenced Bramlett to prison for 16 years for the robbery and six years for escape. He also sentenced him to six-year concurrent sentences on the other two charges.

The (Lafayette) Journal & Courier reports (https://on.jconline.com/1JwsmWS) that a Tippecanoe County deputy was transporting Bramlett from a hospital to the county jail in Lafayette on May 15 when he attacked her. Police said Bramlett jumped into the car driver’s seat and drove away when the deputy stopped her patrol car and got out.
