Peter Bergsma

It's back to court for a Michigan man accused of shooting at a pair of Oglesby police officers.

Thirty-five-year-old Peter Bergsma is set to be arraigned Thursday morning on charges of unlawful discharge of a firearm and possession of a stolen vehicle. Each of the firearm charges is a class X felony meaning they come with the possibility of 30 years in prison if there's a conviction.

Bergsma has been locked up since late last month after he allegedly stepped out of his RV and shot at two officers who responded to a suspicious vehicle call on the campus of Illinois Valley Community College. Bergsma is accused of stealing a squad car, ditching it shortly after and setting off a manhunt that ended near the Shippingsport Bridge near La Salle.

Both officers involved were not injured and after a week off, were allowed back to work.
