A Camden man was sentenced Wednesday to eight years in prison for assaulting four Gloucester County sheriff's officers in 2009.

Brian O. Ojeniyi, 36, injured the officers when he tried to run out of the Woodbury courthouse after learning that a warrant had been issued for his arrest on an earlier drug-distribution charge, according to the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office.

One of the officers, Thomas Whitaker, injured his shoulder and arm when Ojeniyi and other officers fell on top of him. Whitaker was out of work for more than a year. - James Osborne
