WINNEBAGO, Neb. (AP) - A 31-year-old Nebraska man has been sent to federal prison for assaulting a federal officer.

The office of U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg (gihlj) says Thomas White Jr., of Winnebago, was given 33 months behind bars and must serve two years of supervised release after he leaves custody.

Prosecutors say the officer was employed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The officer was on duty at the Winnebago school Oct. 17 when he approached White, who’d been asked to leave the school earlier that day. Prosecutors say White charged the officer and struck him several times on his face, head, arms and side. The officer eventually gained control of White and put him in handcuffs.
