Man sentenced to seven years in prison for road rage

by Shannon Lee
A Centerville man received seven years in prison Friday after pleading guilty to running down a woman in a parking lot last May.
According to police, John Thomas Babcook, 21, cut off Amanda Rose Ferell, 23, on Century Avenue. He proceeded to ram the back of her car after Ferell and her passenger threw a shifting knob and lip balm at his car.
When Ferell got out of her car in a parking lot to confront him, witnesses said that Babcook chased her "at full speed," according to the Star Tribune.
Babcook expressed guilt for the attack in court, while County Attorney Susan Gaertner called his actions "incomprehensible," reports the Pioneer Press.
