EUGENE, Ore. -- After prosecutors dropped attempted murder charges, a man arrested after a police chase in 2017 has pleaded guilty to 10 other charges.

The attempted murder charges were dropped in exchange for Iosif Fomich Ivanov pleading guilty to the other charges, which include unlawful use of a weapon, resisting arrest, and fourth-degree assault.

Springfield police said in 2017 he led them on a car chase, reaching speeds of 100 mph, after he stole an SUV in Eugene.

They said they eventually stopped him on a dead-end street in the town of Coburg, where he reversed the vehicle and slammed into one of the police cars.

After he was arrested, he bailed out of jail three different times and had it revoked twice.

Ivanov is expected to be sentenced on Dec. 11.
