ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A western New York man has been sentenced to nearly 10 years in prison for kicking his pregnant girlfriend in the stomach and attempting to ram his car into police vehicles.

The Monroe County District Attorney’s Office says 21-year-old Tyler Keys was sentenced Wednesday to 9½ years for pleading guilty to charges that included assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

The charges stem from an incident last March when he attacked his girlfriend in the Rochester suburb of Brighton. Authorities say he rammed her car with his vehicle, then attempted to drive into three police vehicles that had responded to the scene.

Police say at one point Keys drove toward an officer who had gotten out of his vehicle, prompting the officer to fire twice at the oncoming car.

No officers were injured.
