BOISE - A Kuna man who was shot multiple times by law enforcement officers after pointing a handgun at them will spend at least eight years behind bars.

Peter Charles See was sentenced Thursday to 25 years in prison, with parole eligibility after eight years.

It's been more than a year since a situation spiraled out of control in the early hours of March 9.

That's when dispatchers got a call that the 43-year-old See had a gun and had threatened to kill himself and a family member before driving off in a truck. Hours later, Ada County Sheriff's Office deputies spotted the truck on Cloverdale Road. See climbed out and pointed a .44 Magnum at them, threatening a bloodbath if they tried to approach.

He sped away, leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase until spike strips rendered his vehicle undrivable. See climbed out of the truck, and again brought his gun to bear on the deputies and a Boise Police officer who had joined the chase.

This time, they opened fire.

See was hit by eight bullets, but law enforcement still had to use a Taser and a police dog to get him into custody. He spent nine months recovering in the Veterans' Administration hospital before he was charged with eight counts of aggravated assault on an officer in December.

Most of those charges were dropped in a January plea deal. See admitted to one count of aggravated assault on an officer and a sentencing enhancement for use of a deadly weapon in commission of a crime.
