A judge sentenced a man to prison time January 4 after pleading no contest to one of the four counts against him, the Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office said.

Anthony Gallo, 33, was sentenced to 16 years in prison after pleading no contest to one count of criminal threats, said Sarah Ardalani of the Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office. As part of a negotiated plea, Gallo had counts two through four dismissed, which included:

Count 2: injuring a spouse, cohabitant, fiancé, boyfriend, girlfriend or child’s parent
Count 3: possession of a firearm by a felon
Count 4: carrying a loaded firearm

Gallo was arrested by Glendora Police October 19 after allegedly chasing his girlfriend just before 3:30 a.m.

Gallo was armed during his pursuit of his girlfriend, who ran to the Glendora Police Station. Officers located Gallo nearby in the 100 block of North Vista Bonita Avenue. He fled from police, but was subdued after resisting arrest, police said.
