A teen who stole his mother’s car, then remained at large all summer and fought with police when they tried to arrest him, will serve half a year behind bars.The defendant, Johnathan Casey Bryant, now 20, was ordered by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to serve 180 days of a two-year sentence, make restitution to his mother and pay a $250 fine on charges of theft over $1,000, evading arrest, assault, and resisting arrest.His sentences come for incidents which happened last July when he took his mother’s vehicle without permission. Police had tried to pull over the teen but he refused to stop, fleeing at speeds of 75 mph. At one point, police saw the teen lose control of the car and slam into a tree.
