Kingsport Man Sentenced to 60 Years for Chase that Injured Trooper
Jason Thomas Byrns of Kingsport received a 60 year prison sentence for leading a police chase that ended with two Virginia State troopers injured. One of them, Trooper Jamie Lawson, was forced to retire after suffering a severe spinal injury. Byrns pleaded guilty in November to more than a dozen charges, including aggravated malicious wounding of a law officer, assault and battery of an officer and felony obstruction of property. He also pleaded no contest to drug possession charges. The chase began after Byrns fled a routine police checkpoint. (LM)
