A Spartanburg, S.C., man on Wednesday received 16 years in state prison after admitting he led a state trooper on a high-speed chase, fired shots at the officer and threw computer equipment out of his vehicle on Oct. 13, 2008. Christopher Adam Tessigner, 27, pleaded guilty to assault with intent to kill, failure to stop for a blue light, possession of methamphetamine and possession of Lortab charges that stemmed from the incident. Remarkably, no one was injured during the chase, despite many close calls. The chase lasted several minutes, originating on Highway 9 and Fourth Street in Boiling Springs, S.C.. Tessigner eluded the trooper by running a red light, but authorities soon found the car, the car's passenger and Tessigner in a field near Cedar Crest Road and Granite Park Lane.
