KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A Browning man who has twice been convicted of partner or family member assault has pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend in an agreement that calls for prosecutors to recommend he serve a five-year suspended sentence with the Department of Corrections.

The Flathead Beacon reports (http://bit.ly/1sPxlPm ) 39-year-old Calvin Steve Spotted Eagle pleaded guilty Thursday to felony partner or family member assault.

Prosecutors alleged Spotted Eagle was arguing with his girlfriend in late August and punched her in the head as they walked in downtown Kalispell. The woman fell, struck her head on the pavement and was knocked unconscious.

Charging documents say Spotted Eagle dragged her to the side of the road.

His previous convictions for partner or family member assault were in June 2003 and May 2011.

Sentencing is set for Dec. 19.
