SD man gets 11 months in prison for spitting at officer

A South Dakota man will be spending 11 months in prison for spitting at a law enforcement officer.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Moreno has sentenced 27-year-old Anthony One Star for his conviction on one count assaulting, resisting or impeding a federal officer. The Rosebud man pleaded guilty to the charge in June.

Authorities say the charge against One Star stems from an incident on Nov. 25 in the community of Two Strike on the Rosebud Indian Reservation. Authorities say a law enforcement officer was summoned to a home after One Star refused to leave, acted disrespectfully and spat on the kitchen area.

Court records show One Star wrestled with the officer, and spat on him multiple times.

Moreno also ordered One Star to one year of supervised release.
