He pleaded guilty to evading arrest, and the other three charges were dismissed. Drullinger was sentenced to four years in prison, his second sentence in less than three years.

Drullinger also has motions against him for reportedly violating parole in Texas and Montana.

In November 2021, Drullinger was sentenced to four years in prison for stealing several vehicles in Wichita Falls while the owners were inside stores paying for gas.

All the car thefts happened in about a month’s time at three 7-Eleven stores and a Stripes.

They came to an end when three men saw him taking a truck from the Stripes and followed him, then tackled him after a foot chase.
