MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - A man who drove over a sheriff's deputy's foot during a high speed chase was sentenced to nine years in prison.

Daetrus Pilate, 41, was convicted in February of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and evading arrest for the chase that happened in August 2011.

Officers were trying to serve Pilate with an arrest warrant on charges that included rape of a child. 

A deputy's dash cam captured video of the chase, including when Pilate ran over Deputy Toby Shaw's foot then sped away. The deputy fired a shot at Pilate, hitting him in the shoulder.

Pilate will be tried September 8 on child rape and other charges.
