WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - A man who formerly lived in the Wausau area will spend 5 years in prison, after pleading guilty to drug related charges.

A federal prosecutor says 36-year-old Matthew Hornung tried to sell methamphetamine at a tribal casino in Wittenberg last October.

When officers arrived to arrest him, he fled from them on foot. During the chase, Hornung tossed a loaded 9mm semiautomatic handgun that he had on him.

He was also convicted of illegal possession of a firearm.

After spending his time in prison, Hornung will be on extended supervision for 5 more years.
