A man who leapt from a second-story window to get away from police has been given 90 days in jail.The fugitive, Christopher Tyler Young, 31, entered guilty pleas to charges of aggravated assault, assault, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and theft. He was ordered to serve 90 days of a four-year sentence.His jail time comes after police arrived at an apartment looking for a wanted person. Young, who didn’t want to be questioned by officers, decided to bail from a back window when he heard police enter the apartment.“He jumped from a second-story window and fled the scene,” said McMinnville Police Sgt. Ben Cantrell, noting a short time later it was discovered why Young was so motivated to flee.“We located a box of 40-caliber ammunition that belonged to Mr. Young,” Cantrell said, noting the suspect is a convicted felon with a long record and is therefore restricted from possessing a firearm.The subsequent investigation revealed the gun was actually hidden under a pillow while police were in the apartment and he had stolen the firearm.
