MEMPHIS, TENN — A Tipton County man has been sentenced to federal prison.
A federal judge announced that Danny Muex will spend 40 months in a federal prison after a conviction of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
The conviction follows Muex’s February 2019 arrest, when officers reported to gunshots near Covington and began pursuing Muex in a white Ford Mustang.
After a chase, the Mustang crashed and police say they witnessed Muex exit the Mustang with a gun in his right hand while fleeing on foot.
Officers captured Muex, who was currently on probation from a Florida felony conviction, and found a loaded Bersa .380 caliber firearm underneath an officer’s vehicle before conducting a search of the Mustang where police found 38 rounds of .380 ammunition and one round of 300 blackout ammunition.
