It’s at least 14 years and up to 21 years behind bars for a man accused of attacking a Michigan State Trooper.

During his sentencing, Wednesday, Michael Barber apologized for his actions.

Police say a Michigan State Trooper was trying to pull Barber over when he crashed his motorcycle on U.S. 31 near Buchanan. A scuffle ensued as the Trooper was arresting Barber, and his brother, Travis Wise, allegedly pulled up and got involved.

Wise is still awaiting trial. His attorney has requested a mental health evaluation for his client. He’s due in court month.

It’s believed the pair could also be connected with a recent string of thefts: one in Mishawaka, the other at a gun store in Shipshewana.
