He wasn't on duty, but he was wearing a ballistic vest with the text "police" on it, WTLV reports.

The police officer, who was not named by The Times-Union because of his work undercover, was shot three times, including in the face. Police shot him as he refused arrest. He hit him three times.

A Florida man who repeatedly shot an undercover cop was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday - and the officer held up a tube of K-Y Jelly in court to taunt the felon about his soon-to-be life behind bars, according to a report.

After Rojas pulled over, he began firing a handgun at the officer and his son.

Speaking at a sentencing hearing the cop, a former army officer, said: "It only took for me to look away for one second and he was already on top of me trying to kill me".

In October, Rojas was found guilty of numerous felonies, including attempted first-degree murder, grand theft auto, attempted manslaughter, two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer. The son wasn't injured, and the detective managed to shoot Rojas before he fled the scene, according to the station.

Kelly spent four years at OR , leading them to a bowl game all four years. The NCAA sanctioned Kelly with "failure to monitor".

"When I brought the fight back, you ran like a coward", the officer said, Action News Jax reports.

The Times-Union reported that Rojas appeared "smug" as the officer spoke.

Kevin Rojas must wait a minimum of 25 years before he can be considered for parole, the judge ruled.

The incident happened when the undercover officer was driving his 14-year-old son to school last year.

The officer also said in court that Rojas had been spineless during their encounter, ambushing the officer when he was with his child.

"I'm pretty sure Mr. Rojas doesn't understand what the rest of his life means", Judge James Daniel said Wednesday, the Times-Union reports.
