Max McCall pleaded no contest to three charges on Monday: attempted first-degree assault on an officer, flight to avoid arrest and use of a firearm to commit a felony. Prosecutors dropped other charges in exchange for McCall’s pleas. His trial was to begin Dec. 3. His sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 16.
Authorities say the deputy was responding to a call about McCall on Aug. 11 when the deputy spotted McCall’s vehicle and gave chase. The chase ended when McCall’s vehicle went into a ditch.
Sheriff Dale Radcliff has said McCall fired twice at the deputy but missed. The deputy shot back, hitting McCall twice.
