A truck driver who led police on a chase and ran a sheriff’s deputy off the road has agreed to plead guilty to one count of aggravated assault and a count of obstructing justice.

On Dec. 15, five people called police about a truck driving erratically near Kimball Junction in Summit County, Utah, according to Fox 13. The driver, identified as 41-year-old Dustin Charles Cullom, was pulled over by an officer but then took off and entered Interstate 80, swerving into oncoming traffic and forcing a deputy into the median.

In exchange for his guilty plea charges of reckless driving and reckless endangerment were dropped, according to KPCW. Cullom made his plea agreement Jan. 8. His sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 25.
