    A former volunteer firefighter has pleaded guilty to charges in connection with a high-speed police chase in Somerset County, Maine.

    The Morning Sentinel reports that 20-year-old Ryan Galouch of Belgrade was sentenced Wednesday in Somerset County to three years in prison with all but 120 days suspended.

    He pleaded guilty to charges including failure to stop for an officer and reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon.

    Police say a Skowhegan officer attempted to stop Galouch after he was speeding in February. They say Galouch almost collided with the officer's cruiser before driving away.

    Authorities say he reached speeds of at least 100 mph during the chase through Skowhegan, Canaan and Pittsfield before he was stopped on Interstate 95.

    Police say Galouch identified himself as a Belgrade firefighter.
