Chambersburg man Jonathan Fisher is being held at Cumberland County Prison after an incident involving threatening another person with a gun.

(Chambersburg) -- A Pennsylvania man has been sentenced in a road rage incident that led to a cross-county police chase.

The York Daily Record reports Jonathan Fisher, of Chambersburg, pleaded guilty to simple assault and reckless endangerment on Wednesday in Franklin County. Fisher will serve up to two and a half years.

In November, Fisher pleaded guilty to fleeing an officer and driving under the influence in Cumberland County. He began serving his sentence of a minimum of one year and a maximum of three years.

Fisher will now serve a total of five years at most.

Police say Fisher flashed a gun at a woman and her child in a parking lot in Franklin County and drove recklessly. Fisher then led police on a chase that ended in Cumberland County.
