The Bloomington man accused of injuring an Iraq War veteran by throwing a metal vise through his windshield will spend more than six years in prison. Fox 9 reports Gerret Parks pled guilty to one count of felony first-degree assault.

More than a dozen other drivers reported similar incidents of heavy objects being hurled at moving cars before Parks was arrested in March. Those property damage charges have been dropped.

He is still facing charges related to a drunken chase in Wisconsin.
