Woodburn Sentenced To Prison For Assaulting Officer In Cheboygan Co

Posted: Updated:

A Nevada man who assaulted a police officer will spend 17 to 35 years in prison.

The assault happened in Grant Township in Cheboygan County last June.  

 Andrew Woodburn smashed his pickup truck into a patrol car head on.  

 That pushed the deputy's car into traffic, crashing with a car carrying four people, including two 12-year-old girls.

 The patrol car was totaled, but no one seriously hurt.

 Woodburn was convicted by a jury earlier this year for assault with intent to murder.
