KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - A man shot by a Kearney police officer last month has been sentenced to four years’ probation.

The Kearney Hub reports (https://bit.ly/2ahhl6e ) that 35-year-old Jose Klich was sentenced Friday for a felony drug possession count. He must also complete a substance abuse treatment program, undergo counseling, take classes in money management, sobriety and employment and abide by a curfew to be set by the state probation department.

Klich was shot once in the torso by Officer Derek Payton on June 5 when Klich tried to flee a traffic stop, clipping Payton’s police cruiser in the process. The officer was trying to serve an arrest warrant for the drug charge at the time of the altercation and chase.
