A Pico Rivera man who led officers on a televised chase in El Monte last month was sentenced to three years in state prison, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday.

Gregory Patrick Flexen, 22, pleaded no contest Tuesday to a felony charge of evading an officer and was immediately sentenced.

Authorities said Flexen ran through red lights, drove on the wrong side of the road and traveled at unsafe speeds after officers tried Sept. 8 to pull over the vehicle he was driving because it did not have a front license plate.

Officers set up a spike strip, but Flexen continued to drive after the car’s tires blew out. He eventually came to a stop and was arrested.
