PLANO (1080 KRLD) - A Frisco man has been indicted by a Collin County grand jury for seven counts from a chase, shooting that wounded a Department of Public Safety Trooper, and a standoff.

Brian Cahill, 42, could face a life prison term, if convicted.

Cahill was arrested March 30 after a tense 15 hour standoff that forced residents of the La Valencia at Starwood apartments as police tried to negotiated an end. He ultimately surrendered.

Cahill is facing charges of aggravated assault of a public servant with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault of a public servant and evading arrest, according to Collin County Court records.

The most serious offense is for the wounding of DPS Trooper Traveres Webb, who was hospitalized for several days and is still recovering.

The chase started when Webb attempted to pull Cahill over for a traffic violation, police said. Instead, police say Cahill led Webb on a chase that ended with a shooting in the parking lot that left Webb wounded. Police say Cahill then barricaded himself inside an apartment.

The mostd serious charge, aggravated assault of a public servant with a deadly weapon, carries a possible life prison term with the possibility of parole. The additional charges could come into play during any parole hearings, should there be a conviction.

"They could get a life sentence on one and get a convicion on the other and the judge could choose to stack one life sentence upon another." said Toby Shook, a former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney who is not associated with the case. "Essentially you could get life without parole under multiple charges."

Cahill is being held on more than $3,000,000 bond, according to Collin County Court records.
