The suspect in a violent standoff in Northwest Bakersfield last year has taken a plea deal, according to Kern County Superior Court records.
Darren Aldridge, 49, pleaded no contest to three criminal counts on Thursday: Assault with a firearm on a police officer; shooting at an occupied motor vehicle; and possession of a firearm by a felon.
As a result of the plea deal, the other 28 charges against Aldridge -- including nine counts of attempted murder -- will be dropped.
Aldridge is scheduled to be sentenced on October 12.
Investigators say Aldridge shot at police after he was served a search warrant in Northwest Bakersfield in September 2015.
