Man who pepper-sprayed officers gets prison

A man accused of pepper-spraying three Glendale police officers last month has been sentenced to 1 1/2 years in prison.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 35-year-old Victor Reyes was sentenced Thursday after he pleaded guilty to attempting to commit aggravated assault.
    
He was arrested in June and originally charged with aggravated assault.
    
Reyes got a longer sentence because he had a previous felony conviction.
    
Police went to Reyes' home in Glendale as they were investigating a report that he pepper-sprayed someone during a fight the previous month.
    
Reyes reportedly pepper-sprayed the officers and a SWAT team was called in to arrest him.
