A man who locked down Listowel's Main Street for several hours earlier this year is heading to jail.
Nathan Chambers, 22, was at the centre of a police chase that led to a home in Listowel's downtown core this past February.
What followed was a six-hour standoff, including lockdowns at local scohols, that ultimately ended with Chambers in custody.
The court heard Chambers was under a court imposed curfew when he was spotted in Listowel, sparking the standoff.
He was under court-ordered prohibitions for his role in a stolen vehicle police chase a month earlier.
Chambers plead guilty to eight charges including flight from police and dangerous driving.
He was sentenced to a year in jail.
