An Austin man who was taken into custody on March 22nd, 2021 after allegedly brandishing a knife at police at an Austin apartment complex, and who also had avoided being taken into custody three days earlier after fleeing from authorities in a motor vehicle has been sentenced to supervised probation in Mower County District Court.

59-year old Johnny Eugene Davis was convicted and sentenced Thursday to four years of supervised probation for a felony charge of fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle.   A 19-month prison sentence was stayed for four years if Davis complies with the 19 different terms of his probation.

Davis first pleaded guilty to the charge on April 18th of this year.
