WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A Williston man accused of stabbing another man with a switchblade and leading police on a chase last summer has been sentenced to serve four years in prison.

The Williston Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1nKU7X3 ) that 23-year-old Anthony Casaus II recently pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, fleeing and possession of drug paraphernalia in an agreement with prosecutors that reduced his potential prison time.

Authorities say Casaus stabbed another man during a fight last July 1, then fled in a vehicle and later on foot, eluding officers in the darkness. Police tracked him to a house and arrested him.

Williams County prosecutor Sandy Jones says the man who was stabbed has recovered but suffered a permanent injury to his right hand.
