Man pleads to shooting at officers

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Bobby Calvin Coe, who has been institutionalized since 2005, pled guilty to multiple counts of aggravated assault Monday in Dougherty Superior Court.

In February of 2005, Coe led Dougherty County Police on a high speed chase that ended in the woods, after he shot at pursuing officers who were trying to arrest him for stealing pecans and a truck and trailer.

It was off Blue Springs Road that police finally caught Bobby Coe, who had let people know that he didn't plan to be taken alive.

It started when a DCP officer tried to pull over Coe, who was wanted for felony theft.

Coe led police down Westover Boulevard in a black Ford F-150. He got out of the truck on Lily Pond Road and took off into the woods.

He came out at Blue Springs Road, coming out of the woods behind a house.

Monday, Judge Stephen Goss sentenced Coe to 13 years in Prison, and gave him credit for the time he had already served.

Coe had been in jail, prison, or mental institutions since 2005.
