A man who assaulted to two police officers after being contacted for using drugs in a Thornton library was sentenced Tuesday in Adams County to seven years in prison.
Jason Daniel Masek, 23, was arrested July 21 when officers were called to the Anythink Library, 9417 Huron St., on a report of suspected drug use, according to the district attorney’s office.
Officers found Masek hiding in a bathroom stall. He punched and fought with officers who tried to arrest him and was able to flee, jumping over fences in backyards before he was caught and arrested a few blocks away, a news release said.
Masek pleaded guilty to second-degree assault of a police officer causing serious bodily injury, and to introduction of contraband while in jail.
At his sentencing on Tuesday, Adams County District Judge Don Quick noted Masek’s drug history and that this was his fourth felony conviction.
