A Beaumont man is going to prison for life without parole for killing a police officer.

A judge Thursday sentenced John Nero after he pleaded no contest to capital murder in the death of officer Bryan Hebert, a 10-year veteran of the Beaumont Police Department.

Police have said the 36-year-old Hebert was retrieving road spikes from his trunk to try to stop Nero when Nero’s vehicle struck the patrol car head-on, pushing it into the officer.

The chase started when an officer tried to talk to Nero about a disturbance earlier that evening at his family’s Beaumont home. Nero had threatened to hurt his family and others.
