A man was sentenced Tuesday in Allen Superior Court for resisting law enforcement last October.

Joshua E. Price, 36, of the 6900 block of Indiana 930, was sentenced to serve one year in the Allen County Jail for one count of resisting law enforcement, a Level 6 felony. Another count of resisting law enforcement was dismissed at sentencing, as per a plea agreement filed April 3.

New Haven Police tried to make a traffic stop Oct. 6 because the plate on the moped Price was riding had expired in 2015, the probable-cause affidavit said.

Price admitted he continued to ride the moped and turned into a motel parking lot. The police officer, who thought Price would stop, saw Price approach the end of the lot, hit his brakes and crashed the moped onto the pavement, the affidavit said.

Price began to walk away and then run into the grass, falling into a ditch. The officer gave repeated commands to stop, which allegedly were ignored by Price. Police tased Price twice because he allegedly kept moving around and trying to get up.

Price has 76 days' jail credit.
