ANCHORAGE - A man whom prosecutors say bragged about his skill at eluding Anchorage police has been sentenced to nine years and four months in prison.
Nick James Kingik pleaded guilty last week to vehicle theft, assault and multiple counts of failure to stop for a police officer, driving under the influence and violating conditions of release.
Prosecutors say Kingik three times in 2009 drove drunk in rental or stolen cars, and when observed weaving, refused to stop for officers.
The last two incidents in November and December occurred while he was out on bail for a February incident. Police subdued Kingik with a stun gun in the December incident.
Kingik had three prior convictions for vehicle theft and was on felony probation when charged with the 2009 crimes.
