Red Lake, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A 30-year-old Red Lake man pleaded guilty in Federal Court Friday to running a vehicle off the road on the Red Lake Indian Reservation.

Tony Lee Lussier specifically pleaded guilty to one count of assault with a dangerous weapon.

In his plea agreement, Lussier admitted that on May 12, 2013, while he was driving a motor vehicle, he chased another vehicle occupied by four people.

Lussier admittedly crashed into the other vehicle, causing it to roll into the ditch.

He then attempted to assault the other vehicle's occupants before returning to his vehicle and driving away.

For his crime, Lussier faces a potential maximum penalty of ten years in prison.
