Mission man sentenced for assaulting federal officer

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Mission man has been sentenced to nine months in custody for assaulting a federal officer on the Rosebud Indian Reservation.

Authorities say 21-year-old Justin Fast Horse led officers on a chase in and around Mission on March 3 while driving drunk. They say he backed the pickup truck he was driving into a patrol vehicle and also spit at an officer while being arrested.

Fast Horse pleaded guilty in March and was sentenced this week. U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says he also was ordered to pay nearly $6,900 in restitution.
