Milwaukee - On Monday, Juan C. Alvarado, 19, of Milwaukee was sentenced to ten years in prison after pleading guilty for striking Milwaukee Police Officer Frank Vrtochnick, 37, on Christmas Eve of 2011. Alvarado had been charged with first-degree reckless injury and reckless endangering safety, according to the criminal complaint.
Vrtochnick while in a traffic routine stop was strucked by Alavardo after he went over a curb as he drove on the wrong side of the street. Vrtochnick was accompanied by his partner and was outside the squad on the passenger's side when he was struck. He sustained numerous scrapes, a broken leg and continues to recover.
Alvarado fled the scene and managed to hid his 1998 Chevy Malibu in a garage near S. 15th Street and W. Becher Street. He then went to Chicago to avoid being taken into custody. 
He was later arrested by Chicago police.
