Mumma was pulled over in a traffic stop by officers on April 10, 2018 when a K-9 alerted officers of drugs in the car. That’s when Mumma pulled out a gun and aimed it at a deputy. A struggle ensued, with Mumma firing several shots before the gun was knocked away. Mumma suffered hand injuries. Both officers were cleared of any wrongdoing.

Mumma is set to be sentenced on May 17. He could face up to 40 years in prison for  attempted murder, and another 20 for the being a habitual offender.
