Man gets maximum in Ranchos rampage
A Gardnerville Ranchos man was sentenced to 19-48 months in prison on Monday for assaulting a deputy during a June 14 drug-fueled rampage.
Addison Orr received the maximum sentence from District Judge Thomas Gregory on Monday.
Prosecutor Erik Levin said Orr also received concurrent sentences for possession of a controlled substance and battery on an officer.
A deputy spotted Orr, 28, who matched the description of a suspicious person seen hanging around the mailboxes on Wheeler Way, walking on Langley and contacted him.
Orr threw his hat down and took a fighting stance, but the deputy tried to calm him down. According to the affidavit filed with East Fork Justice Court, Orr then picked up a rock, which the deputy convinced him to drop.
Orr tried to walk away, but the deputy, concerned that Orr is violent when under the influence, tried to take him into custody.
According to the report, acustomer at the nearby 7-Eleven called Orr by name, and Orr responded by hitting the man with his knee and fist, injuring him.
Deputies tackled Orr, who allegedly reached for one of their guns during the struggle.
