Tiger Attack Victim Gets 16-Month Prison Sentence

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - One of two brothers who survived a tiger attack at San Francisco Zoo has been sentenced to 16 months in state prison for violating probation in a felony reckless driving case.

In December, Paul Dhaliwal was sentenced to 30 days in Santa Clara County jail and three years of probation for leading police on a high-speed chase through San Jose last year.

But three days after sentencing he was cited for marijuana possession, and in March he was also arrested on suspicion of shoplifting.

Prosecutors say the 20-year-old Dhaliwal received the 16-month-prison sentence last week in Santa Clara County Superior Court.

Dhaliwal and his older brother were mauled by a Siberian tiger in a Christmas Day attack that left their friend dead.
