Joaquin Man Pleads "No Contest"

A Joaquin man has pleaded "no contest" to charges he faced in connection with last year's fatal shooting of a teenager by a Shelby County sheriff's deputy.

Michael Glenn Bass was charged with evading arrest and deadly conduct.

In exchange for the plea, he has been sentenced to probation. If he meets the terms of probation, the charges will be removed from his record.

In may of last year, Bass led Deputy Brian Tyler on a high-speed chase. The chase ended when Tyler fired shots at the truck, which he said was racing toward him.

17-year-old Christopher Curry, a passenger in Bass' truck, was shot and killed.

Deputy Tyler was indicted for criminally negligent homicide, but that indictment was later dismissed.
