LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A New Providence man will serve at least 18 months in prison for threatening and harassing an ex-girlfriend and then leading police on a 10-mile pursuit.
Jeremy Neuhauser, 37, pleaded guilty Friday to fleeing police, terroristic threats, harassment, and related charges, according to the Lancaster County district attorney’s office. He was sentenced to 18 months to three years in prison.
Authorities said Neuhauser in July called and text-messaged the woman over 75 times in one day and threatened to kill her during one call. Five days later, he fled Lancaster police when they tried to take him into custody.
The 17-minute chase ended at the Manheim Auto Auction when Neuhauser crashed through a chain-link fence. Police used a stun gun to stop him as he fled on foot.
Neuhauser was ordered to pay $30,000 in restitution for damages to the auto auction property and police vehicles. He is prohibited from having contact with the woman.
